New Orleans own Tank and The Bangas have the kind of music success story we love to hear: A group of music lovers finds each other, coalesces, works hard to develop a sound, and blows up on the strength of that sound and their unforgettable performances.

This July at AFROPUNK Paris, I spoke to the band about the inspiring journey that has taken them from New Orleans clubs to Brooklyn for AFROPUNK’s 2016’s Battle of The Bands and far beyond. It all started with a dream and the fateful sale of two BOTB tickets.

As AFROPUNK Brooklyn approaches, get a preview of the energy they’ll be bringing to the stage as they tell their story and talk about special meaning the color green has for them.
