Ranky Tanky is a GRAMMY award winning, Charleston, SC-based quintet, performs timeless music born from the Gullah culture of the southeastern Sea Islands. Their music is brought to life by mixing the low country traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B. Their latest album release Good Time, won the 2020 GRAMMY for Best Regional Roots album. The word “Gullah” comes from West Africa and means “a people blessed by God,” and “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!”
