Listen: Ranky Tanky on Mountain Stage


Ranky Tanky are a South Carolina based band that specializes in “Gullah” music- a style born out of the coastal region and influenced by West African traditions. Here’s the band’s take on the American folk song, “O Death,” for our Mountain Stage Song of the Week.

You’ll hear more from Ranky Tanky, as well as sets from Tal National, Calan, Amy Rigby and Shannon McNally on this week’s encore episode of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce. Find a station in your area to listen in.
