An unorthodox musical ensemble from South Carolina, Ranky Tanky adds elements of classic Gullah music to modern day jazz. Recognized for their one-of-a-kind sound and soulful lyrics, the band is often placed amongst the best of the genre, with multiple hits like "That's Alright," "Beat em Down," and "Stand By Me" to its credit. Its self-titled studio album has been praised for its melodious tunes and uplifting vocals that beautifully exemplifies a rather touchy subject.
