I couldn’t click away when I stumbled on the Tank and the Bangas — this beautiful tangled mixed of Louisiana musicians flexing an eclectic use of sax, flute, ivory tickling and diverse percussion. They are New Orleans jazzy sweet and funky blue stitching in hip-hop, poetic call-and-response storytelling. Tarriona ‘Tank’ Ball hasa theatrical wit and enjoyment as she renders a Macy Gray flair that dips back and forth into rich depth. Every moment felt provocative yet fun. It’s a sandstorm journey of humor and tale.
‘Tank’ — who started in spoken word slams –– says she wanted more music in her life.
So, she bundled up with this talented group and took it on the road. I can’t express how happy I am that they did!
