Sound Bridges is a Brooklyn based performance group that combines elements of West African music with jazz and tap dance. Sound Bridges presents all original compositions drawn from African and jazz influences featuring the ancient sounds of the balafon, a wooden xylophone central to the Mande music traditions of West Africa.
Sound Bridges and Percussive dance is an award-winning world music group based in New York City.
Founded in 2019, the group combines elements of West African Mande music with Jazz, Flamenco and tap.
While staying true to their roots, the collective is interested in constructing new rhythmic conversations.
We are dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of percussive dance forms: American tap dance, Spanish flamenco, and West African dance and music.
Our mission is to inform, educate and entertain through the universal language of rhythm, promoting intercultural understanding, cultural diversity and tolerance among people of all nations.
