Event Description

This Charleston-based jazz quartet performs the timeless music of Gullah culture, born in the southeastern Sea Island region of South Carolina, that has shaped much of American art, food, and language. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, Ranky Tanky’s four Gullah descendants have joined together to celebrate a heartland of music born in their own backyards.
