  • Gullah Geechee

    A little known American culture...



    Ranky Tanky, a contemporary Gullah band. In the Gullah culture, Ranky Tanky translates as "work it", or "get funky"...

      Great post CMD. I found it very interesting. I had never heard of the Gullah Geechee before but I have heard that music I just never knew where it originated. It has a wonderful blend of African spiritual, jazz and gospel...just a great rhythm...I would love to spend a few days with them. I bet that Sunday dinner is outta this world!!! Great post man...

        I was not too familiar either. Until I read that that particular band is appearing here in Providence this Sunday as part of a big annual Providence festival. So I explored their music a little, and came across the Vice News video describing the culture. I had heard of the development going on there before, but found the story very interesting, as well, unfortunately, a bit sad. I hope some of their heirs lands can survive, but I guess that will be difficult.
