A team of young Rwandans based in the United States of America has released a song, Intashyo, dedicating it to over a million lives lost in the Genocide against the Tutsi and the people of Rwanda.

"We as artistes came together and thought it would be best if we used our talent to record and dedicate a song to the many lives our country lost during the Genocide against Tutsi. We also made this song for the people of Rwanda who strive for a better future everyday," explained Didier Ganza, the director of the song.

The song features artistes Pacifique Buramba Jabiro aka Jay Pac, Yannick "Noah" Murayire, and Julien Rusine aka Ju.
