Ranky Tanky

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 • 7 PM

“Gullah” comes from the languages of West Africa and means “a people blessed by God.” “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” The soulful songs of the Gullah culture are brought to life by this band of native South Carolinians who mix low country traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B.
Ranky Tanky released their self-titled debut last October. By December, the group had been profiled on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and their album soared to the #1 position on the Billboard, I-Tunes, and Amazon Jazz Charts. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston are “rank” and fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown.
