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

"Wowing audiences the world over with their soulful, get-up-and-dance versions of Sea Island spirituals and work songs." Charleston 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. With a name translating to “work it” or “get funky!” in their region’s unique Creole language, the exuberant group comes to Santa Barbara for the first time on the heels of their 2020 Grammy win for Best Regional Roots Music Album.
