Make your voice heard

Here at Community Voice International, we want to connect partner communities and audiences as directly as possible. As we plan our work for the future, we are constantly looking for ways to bring community members and audiences closer together. So, now we’re turning to you to find out what you would like us to do to bring communities’ music to the world. Please share your ideas.

Are you an audience member who would like to talk to musicians in Senegal? Let us know.

Are you a community member who thinks we should train local youth to record local music? Tell us.

Would you rather participate in live-streamed performances instead of listening to recorded music? Speak up.

Are you a Peace Corps Volunteer who wants us to start working in your community? Point us in the right direction.

Is there a region whose music we need to share with the world? We’re listening.

Please take a moment to share your ideas–no matter how simple or outrageous–with us. You can post a comment below, post on our Facebook page, send us a tweet, or email us. We will listen to everything and try to make as much of these ideas a reality.

    I love the idea of streaming live performances. May be a bit of a technological challenge – may ruin the 21st century innocence of some of these places – so probably not for every community. While entertainment is streaming, there could be ticker tape of community projects with donations needed and place to donate listed. Also it would be neat to tie into our (American) local, progressive radio stations with some sort of “sister station” type of broadcasts/fundraising/(eco music) tours.

      Thanks, Stephanie! We love the idea of livestreaming. Yes, connectivity is a bit of a challenge at this point, but mobile technology is making huge leaps forward in Senegal. Streaming may not be too far off.

      We are constantly looking for partners, so if there are specific radio stations you think we should contact, please let us know. Also, feel free to reach out to radio stations on our behalf and spread the word.

    Hi there! I just happened upon your website today while tirelessly googling music and community development projects, thinking it would return no hits per usual. But look! You guys are AWESOME. This is such exciting work.
    I’m super interested in talking to someone about how I could be involved. I’m looking to create a trip post-graduation from college to do similar work in a community abroad and would love to partner with you. Send me an email! Thank you!
