Jazz Concert “Ranky Tanky” at Raymond F. Kravis Center For The Performing Arts

Wed Apr 11, 2018 - Thu Apr 12, 2018

Gullah originated in West Africa and means “a people blessed by God.” And Ranky Tanky translates loosely as “work it” or “get funky”! It’s in this spirit that jazz musicians Quentin Baxter, Kevin Hamilton, Charlton Singleton and Clay Ross, with celebrated Lowcountry singer Quiana Parler, perform Gullah music that evolved from the coastal region of South Carolina and Georgia. Selections range from rambunctious game songs to soulful spirituals.
