Ranky Tanky

“You’ve got to hear this band!” Fresh Air, Terry Gross.

Soared to top 10 on the Billboard Charts this month!  Taking its name from the Gullah phrase for “work it” or “get down,” Ranky Tanky infuses the music of the Georgia/South Carolina sea islands with jazz, gospel, and R&B—and the result is irresistible. Grounded by “an enigmatic, unshakeable and unspoiled tradition that’s long been hidden in plain sight,” this band brings together six dynamic musicians, many of whom call Charleston home. Lead vocalist Quiana Parler, “whose power, dexterity and expressiveness convey the breadth and strength of the material’s emotional content” (JAZZIZ magazine), merges her talents with trumpeter/singer Charlton Singleton, bassist Kevin Hamilton, percussionists Quentin Baxter and Calvin Baxter, and guitarist/singer Clay Ross.
