" ... a taste of Gullah culture through a repertoire of contagious shout and game songs, spirituals, lullabies and more." — Post and Courier
Representing the African-American Gullah culture of the Sea Island region of South Carolina, Ranky Tanky performs an ecstatic blend of ancestral spirituals, shout songs, gospel, funk, and blues, intersecting with soulful jazz. The Gullah, descendants of West African slaves, bring a cross-Atlantic musical pollination that has created this unique emotional, deep, fertile and funky take on the American experience. Get up and dance!
