Ranky Tanky (K-12): Community National Bank Student Matinee Series
The Gullah people are descendants of slaves brought from primarily West African nations to farm rice on the Sea Island off the coast of the south Atlantic seaboard. The Gullah have lived in relative isolation, and their culture and traditions were able to be preserved without much outside influence. Ranky Tanky celebrates this tradition by breathing new life into traditional Gullah music, celebrating an oft overlooked genre and people with soul, funk and R&B. Lively, soulful honey to the ears. Curriculum Connections: Historical, Musical Multi-Cultural.
