Tank and The Bangas
New Orleans collective Tank and the Bangas have been catapulted to new heights since winning NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest. With the irrepressible Tarriona ‘Tank’ Ball leading the charge, the crew meld spoken word, soul, funk and improvisational jazz in unforgettable live performances that are every bit as vibrant and quirky as their home town. Bell is the charismatic “conductor of a colourful, boisterous orchestra” (Auston Chronicle), spitting out rapid-fire versesand diving into soulful, spine-tingling vocals.
“The group have been a well-kept secret for years, but the word is out.” (Rolling Stone)
