Dedicated to the African roots music of the Gullah culture of the coastal lowlands and sea islands of Georgia and South Carolina, Ranky Tanky (“get funky” in Gullah patois) has received numerous raves since their debut album “overflowing with authenticity” (Afropop Worldwide) came out in 2017. Powerhouse vocalist Quiana Parler (a 2003 American Idol standout) fronts an accomplished jazz quartet of fellow Charleston musicians and longtime friends, performing gutsy spirituals, blues, songs and more that mark the endurance and beauty of African-American culture.
