Soulful honey to the ears.
Whether unleashing a high-energy dance number or carefully sculpting a lullaby, their music always feels fresh.
This Charleston-based jazz quintet performs the timeless music of Gullah culture, born in the southeastern Sea Island region of South Carolina, that has shaped much of American art, food, and language. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, Ranky Tanky’s four Gullah descendants have joined together to celebrate a heartland of music born in their own backyards.
