Tacoma Arts Live presents
The word Gullah comes from West African language, meaning “a people blessed by God.” It is used to describe a culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to joyful shouts, from wrenching spirituals to soft lullabies, the soulful songs of the Gullah culture are brought to life by this gifted and Grammy Award winning band of native South Carolinians, who mix traditions of the Lowcountry with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk and R&B. In Gullah, Ranky Tanky translates loosely as “Work It!” or “Get Funky!” Come experience how this joyous group does both.
Our goals are to keep everyone safe and healthy while doing our part to stop the transmission of the virus. We will accept documentation at the door the day of the performance including vaccine cards or 72-hour negative test results (including photos/copies or verified electronic methods) along with photo ID.
Tacoma Arts Live will regularly monitor Health Guidelines and update these procedures as needed. Please visit our website or contact our box office with any questions.
