South Carolina’s global Gullah ambassadors and the Billboard chart-toppers making “soulful honey to the ears” (NPR) — have released their new album Good Time via Resilience Music Alliance. After weeks of teasing new music and already releasing a pair of EPs this summer, the five-piece brings it all home on Good Time. “Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God.” “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” In this spirit this Charleston, SC based quintet performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston, SC are “rank” and fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown.
