Ranky Tanky are “lively, soulful honey to the ears.” – NPR
Lisa Fischer “in concert is addictive. Every performance is so enriching, so exciting, so transcendent.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
Grammy Award-winning quintet Ranky Tanky performs timeless music born from the Gullah culture of the southeastern Sea Islands. Playful game songs, ecstatic shouts, and heartbreaking spirituals can all be found on their latest release Good Time. Joining them at the 2022 TD JazzFest, and returning to Victoria, will be Ms. Lisa Fischer, who after four decades of featured background singing with icons like Luther Vandross, The Rolling Stones, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, and Nine Inch Nails, as well as having been featured in the 2013 Best Documentary Oscar winning film “Twenty Feet from Stardom,” she has set out to take center stage.
