Center for Faith and Life, Main Hall

Winner of this year’s GRAMMY® award for Regional Roots Album, this spectacular quintet celebrates music born from the Gullah culture of the South Carolina coast. The Gullah people are a tight-knit community, mostly descendants of slaves, who have kept West African culture alive for generations through art and music. Ranky Tanky has brought this tradition to a national audience, soaring to the top of  the charts with playful game songs, ecstatic shouts, heartbreaking spirituals and original songs inspired by Gullah tradition.
