El Sistema Toronto Youth Sing Their Truth

The Ensemble seeks to connect and inform all people who are committed to ensemble music education for youth empowerment and social change.

El Sistema Toronto Youth Sing Their Truth


Songwriting can open a door for youth to explore and express complex feelings and experiences. El Sistema Toronto students teamed up with award-winning Indigenous hip hop artist Cody Coyote and Juno-nominated Toronto rapper Saukrates to write and record “WAY: We Are Young,” a song that captures both the hopefulness and vulnerability of young people who are coming of age in a rapidly changing world. Check out the music video, produced by Zac Facts, at Sistema Toronto’s YouTube page. What better way to learn about the hopes, dreams, and struggles of the youth we serve than to hear it directly from them?
