Ranky Tanky

  • Details
  • “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” in the Gullah language. With influences of jazz, blues, gospel, and folk music, this Charleston, South Carolina-based quintet is reviving the extraordinary Gullah music of America’s southeastern Sea Islands, where geographical isolation has helped sustain West African traditions and ways of life for generations. These award winning musicians—whose collective accomplishments have garnered international acclaim, grammy nominations, and thousands of performances around the world—perform a variety of traditional tunes, from playful game-songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies.
