After a year of lockdowns and shuttered venues, Guided by Starlight — Exploring Toronto’s Musical Galaxy celebrates the musicians and communities at the heart of Toronto’s vibrant musical cosmos. Discover a scene defined by indie labels, underground international sensations, live concerts, and iconic venues.  

This 5-part music series travels across Toronto’s wide-ranging neighbourhoods and musical genres, offering an insider’s look at the places and spaces that inform each artist’s work. 

Featuring well-known names (Zaki Ibrahim, SATE) alongside up-and-coming sensations (Säye Skye, Hex, Kristi Lane Sinclair), Guided by Starlight reminds us that from Scarborough to Etobicoke, Toronto’s vibrant and diverse musical communities continue to celebrate creativity in life and sound.
