8 pm Nunki Bay Starship
9 pm Tank and the Bangas

The members of the band: Tarriona “Tank” Ball – voice, Daniel Abel – guitar, Jonathan Johnson – bass guitar, Albert Allenback – alto saxophone, flute, Norman Spence – keyboards, effects, Daniel Abraham Jr – keyboards, Joshua Johnson – drums, Tia Henderson – backing vocals

The members of Tank and the Bangas met while jamming at an Orleans open mic event in 2011. The chemistry was instant, and soon the band was formed, which went on to conquer America.
Their 2013 debut album was already released to the delight of a sizeable fan base. The next milestone came in 2017, when they won National Public Radio’s Tiny Desk competition, out of 6000 contestants, with the host, Bob Boilen praising “the depth of their lyricism and the versatility of their players.”
The second album, Green Balloon came out in 2019, offering proof, more striking than ever, of what a wide range of music the group was capable of shaping to its own likeness. In the very person of the lead singer Tarriona “Tank” Ball, not one but at least three performers with different styles seem to converge. She effortlessly slips from the articulation of a slam poet into that of a soul or jazz singer, before transforming into a rapper, while her avant-garde lyrics have all the merits of poetry.

This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre as a joint program with A38 Ship.
