This Charleston (SC)–based quintet performs timeless music born from the Gullah culture of the southeastern Sea Islands. Their debut album was featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and the Today show. It also soared to the #1 position on the Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes Jazz Charts. Playful game songs, ecstatic shouts, and heartbreaking spirituals can all be found on their latest release, "Good Time," which also offers the group's first original songs inspired by Gullah tradition.

Ranky Tanky won the 2019 Grammy award in the Best Regional Roots Album category, and their live show is a sensation like you haven't seen since The War and Treaty outgrew the Ark stage.
