The band Ranky Tanky is from Charleston, South Carolina, and their music draws on the culture of slave descendants from the region known as the Gullah <GUHL-uh>. We'll learn how the group came to be – And a bit of musical history, on the background of Gullah music and the importance of Alan Lomax. Plus, some incredible live performances, anchored by the powerful voice of Quiana Parler. Coming up, on the next World Cafe.
