Sound Community offers world music and dance  workshops and performances at numerous locations throughout Louisville, KY and regionally. We are devoted to hands-on participation in culture-based art forms. We also host accessible, low-cost events featuring local world music and dance performers, and offer public workshops and classes for adults and families.

Due to the pandemic, most Sound Community events are suspended until further notice. Stay safe, mask up, and help our community to survive, so we can thrive! 

Sound Community is pleased to announce the new Bucket of Art and Music (BAM!), for healthy-at-home music and art explorations. Most of the 20+ DIY projects are simple enough for K-4th grade, but are fun for people of all ages. You will find more information on the Bucket of Art and Music page, but to order, please visit:

...and put a bucket on your list!

KUVEBO! is Sound Community's resident West African drum and dance company, featuring performances and workshops presenting these community-building art forms. ​ 

We have been safely rehearsing outdoors during the pandemic, and have recently participated in Bowling Green's Virtual International Festival--which we filmed with a professional crew in a local park. Footage coming soon! 

Kuvebo! will also be filming for the Grassroots Radio Conference, held this year in Louisville, with presenters including Chuck D of Public Enemy as well as numerous radio hosts and activists from grassroots stations across the country.  

Kuvebo! joined in the recent demonstrations for justice for Breonna Taylor, for George Floyd, and for all BIPOC living under continuing oppression. We thank Roots 101 for organizing the Juneteenth 2020 Festival, and for engaging the community in the struggle for social, economic, and political justice. 

​Our performance featured dancers Moha Dosso (Cote d'Ivoire) and Hamidou Koivogui (Guinea), with drummers Baba Kenyataa, John Harris, Peter Jones, and Gregory Acker. ​​​
