From 106 & York

“Known for being the outlet for many talented Toronto youth, 106 & York has spent the last year becoming even more focused on discovering talented young people across the city, and more specifically in the North West Toronto area. Visiting local high schools and holding auditions in malls, this year’s show emphasizes a whole new level of community outreach and a new array of talent. Artists are working together alongside carefully selected mentors to create not just a show, but a production. From rappers to singers to dancers and so much more, the show is bound to captivate the audience. Hosted by Femi Lawson alongside the video submission winning guest host, the audience is sure to be entertained.

Natasha was born and raised in Toronto. She graduated from York University almost 2 years ago and since then has co-founded a youth led, social enterprise called The Next Edition which uses media and art to engage youth with their community. For the past year and a half she has been working with young aspiring artists who are looking for a way to showcase their skills and have their voice heard. With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
