Brought together with a passion for music, equity and representation, our team values community and innovation over all else! 


The Tawoos Initiative was founded in 2018 by three friends who went to the University of Toronto as international students. Coming together from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, a common desire to see more representation of folks who connected with us and our music taste led to the creation of a hub that does just that!
