Following their debut album in 2017, Ranky Tanky has 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. The term “Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God.” The quintet performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the US. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston, SC, are “rank” and fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown.
