Ranky Tanky

Presented By
Savannah Jazz

This two-time Grammy-Award-winning, 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 groups’ first original songs inspired by Gullah tradition. Their most recent album won a second Grammy in 2023. With the #1 jazz album on iTunes and Amazon, their music was called “soulful honey to the ears” by NPR, they are bringing the soothing and upbeat “Ranky Tanky” (Gullah for ‘get funky’) good-time music to us at the 42nd Savannah Jazz Festival.
