Expert Answer:

Yes sound wave can travel longitudinally in plasma state of matter. Plasma state is basically electron breaking stage at very high temperature so it's still a gas through which light and sound wave can travel. Whereas Bose-Einstein condensate is very dense material sound wave travel through it ate very slow speed u can have the idea by this speed of light in Bose-Einstein condensate is 10 m/s. Yes sound wave do propagate through this.
