Ranky Tanky

“Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” In this spirit, this Charleston, South Carolina-based quintet performs timeless music of Gullah culture, African Americas who live in the Lowcountry region of the United States who speak a creole language, sometimes referred to as Geechee. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical Gullah roots of Charleston, SC are “rank” and fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown. Ranky Tanky consists of five talented musicians playing drums, bass, guitar and trumpet in addition to their show-stopping vocals that helped their album soar to the #1 position on the Billboard, I-Tunes, and Amazon Jazz charts. Whether you’re a fan of Gullah music or looking to experience a new genre of music, Ranky Tanky will have you dancing in the aisles.
