Grammy-award winning band Ranky Tanky hails from Charleston, South Carolina, and their music draws on the culture of slave descendants from the region known as the Gullah. The group joined host Stephen Kallao back in October to talk about how they came to be. We'll hear some 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 this encore edition of the World Cafe.
