Ranky Tanky is a Grammy award winning, Charleston, SC-based quintet that performs timeless music born from the Gullah culture of the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, this jazz influenced group whose name translates loosely as “Work It” or “Get Funky!” will have you off your feet. The soulful songs of the Gullah culture, music made by a self-contained culture of descendants of enslaved Africans, are brought to life by this band of native South Carolinians who mix the low country traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B.
