OVERVIEW

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.

With Yang Yi, zheng

As the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, Wu Man has given the lute-like instrument a new role in both traditional and contemporary music. McCarter audiences may be familiar with her work already as one of the founding members and lead soloists of the Silk Road Ensemble, alongside prodigious cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
