The soulful songs of the Gullah culture are brought to life by this band of native South Carolinians who mix timeless Lowcountry traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk and R&B for a wholly unique sound.
Ranky Tanky first came together in 1998, fresh out of college, to form a seminal Charleston jazz quartet. Now, united by years apart and a deeper understanding of home, these accomplished artists have come together again to revive a “Heartland of American Music” born in their own backyards.
The band released its self-titled debut in October of 2017. By December of that year, the group had been profiled on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and their album soared to number 1 on the Billboard, iTunes and Amazon Jazz charts.
