Back to: Small Studio Sessions
Tank and the Bangas
June 04, 2019
Tank and the Bangas were in good spirits when they stopped by WFYI to record their Small Studio session. That positive energy is a big part of the band’s dynamic and sound, which matches an improvisational approach to jazz, soul, and hip-hop with the spoken word/sung vocals of the group’s leader Tariona “Tank” Ball. Tank and the Bangas have plenty of reasons to be feeling good these days - their visit to WFYI came on the heels of a performance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in support of their anticipated sophomore LP Green Balloon. Tank and the Bangas are poised on the threshold of a major breakthrough into the world of popular music, and they attribute much of that success to public radio.
