Kutandara Center supports many ensembles that perform publicly to share music and educate audiences about African cultures and histories.

All Kutandara Center ensembles are also available for hire privately to provide music and entertainment for your next special event.

Our bands perform primarily in the summer months, but occasionally perform publicly during the school year. Please contact us if you would like to be placed on our email list to receive announcements of upcoming performances and Kutandara Center events.


Kutandara Kombi
Nyland Co-Housing Concert Series
Friday, February 20 @ 8 pm
Nyland Co-Housing Community Common House @ 3525 Nyland Way in Lafayette, Colorado
Sliding scale donation at the door

So what is a house concert? Quite frankly, we think it's the best way to enjoy live music. You're invited to a home (or in our case, our co-housing community's common house) for an intimate evening of music. Your sliding scale donation goes straight to the artist, who usually uses it to get to the next gig. What's not to like? It's music like it was in the old days, before bars and clubs and stadiums decided they could make money off it. What you can expect good people, good music, no bar (BYO), and  an all ages crowd. See you there! https://www.facebook.com/events/736311569775861/
