“One of the greatest gifts of the year.” Afropop

“Unfamiliar enough to be surprising, and yet familiar enough to provoke swinging hips and nodding heads… It’s the best of both worlds.” Paste Magazine

Charleston’s high-spirited Ranky Tanky is a dynamo quintet exploding onto the music scene with their inspired take on soulful songs of South Carolina’s Gullah culture, mixing the lowcountry traditions of their West African ancestors with dynamic doses of jazz, gospel, funk and R&B. In the unique Creole mix of African and English that has shaped art, language and attitude, their name means “work it” or “get funky” – yes they do, and yes you will! Following a standout performance at the 2017 GlobalFest and a top-charting debut album, the exuberant group comes to Santa Barbara for the first time to have you dancing in the aisles.
