Ranky Tanky – Levitt at the Falls


Ranky Tanky Levitt at the FallsRanky Tanky – Levitt at the Falls: Free Outdoor Concert

Ranky Tanky is a GRAMMY award-winning, Charleston, SC-based quintet, performs timeless music born from the Gullah culture of the southeastern Sea Islands. Their soulful songs are brought to life by mixing the low country Gullah traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B.

Playful game songs, ecstatic shouts, and heartbreaking spirituals can all be found on their latest release Good Time, which won the 2020 GRAMMY for Best Regional Roots album. The word “Gullah” comes from West Africa and means “a people blessed by God,” and “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely to “Work It,” or “Get Funky!”
