Ranky Tanky

Ranky Tanky

Infectious, intoxicating and exotic, South Carolina’s “Ranky Tanky” is Sea Island Gullah for “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” And that’s just what happens. Frisky and hypnotic rhythms, a bone-deep mix of spirituals and gutbucket blues, from the 5 piece band that combines gospel vocals (Quiana Parker), jazz trumpet solos (Charlton Singleton), and a terrific R&B rhythm section.
