Refusing to conform to the norm in music, New Orleans originals Tank and the Bangas have added tabasco sauce and gumbo favoured beats to jazz stereotypes

Hailing from New Orleans, Tank and the Bangas grew up surrounded by plenty of grand musical traditions. The five-piece group have 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 that evokes the scope of New Orleans music while retaining a distinctive feel all its own.

What started as a loose collaboration at an open-mic night in 2011 has grown into a mesmerising musical force that's only picking up speed. After a featured set at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival early in the bands career, and eventually went on to win the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk contest bringing them an immediate worldwide fanbase

Out of over 6,000 entries — more submissions than we've ever received — Tank And The Bangas won, unanimously, this year's Tiny Desk Contest. I fully expected their victory performance here at NPR headquarters in D.C. to be celebratory. I didn't know we'd all end up in tears. NPR Host Bob Boilen
