Ranky Tanky

Ranky Tanky
"Enough to provoke swinging hips and nodding heads." - Paste Magazine

"Soulful honey to the ears." - NPR

“Ranky Tanky, from Charleston, S.C., sings old Gullah songs — some of them sly moral lessons — in arrangements that connect their beat to a New Orleans lilt.” – New York Times


Ranky Tanky released their eponymous debut ablum in October of 2017, and by December the group had been been profiled on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and their album soared to the #1 positions on the Billboard, I-Tunes, and Amazon Jazz Charts.

“Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God.” “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” In this spirit this Charleston, SC based quintet performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. 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.
