Ranky Tanky Performing LIVE
MIM Music Theater

Event Cost/Ticket Price:
Ranky Tanky released their eponymous debut album on October 20, 2017. By December of that year, the group had been profiled on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and their album soared to the number-one position on the Billboard, iTunes, and Amazon jazz charts.
“Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God,” and “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky.” In this spirit, the quintet based in Charleston, South Carolina, performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Islands region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston are fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown.
