About Tank and the Bangas
Coming from New Orleans, Tank and the Bangas are surrounded by plenty of grand musical traditions. And the five-piece group has a rare knack for combining various musical styles – fiery soul, deft hip-hop, deep-groove R&B and subtle jazz – into one dazzling, cohesive whole. Combining the various musical techniques among the Bangas, coupled with the instilling play on lyrics from the lead vocalist Tarriona Ball; Tank and The Bangas have quilted a unique sound that singles them as one of the most distinctive groups to come out of New Orleans. Most recently the band was titled as the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk Contest winners.
