UNDERGROUND :

Despite the stereotype of Muslims in the West, the "TAQX" or Taqwacore artistic scene came together essentially via social networking sites such as Myspace and Facebook, which helped to accelerate their growth as a movement. Taqwacore artists include playwrights, cartoonists, musicians, designers, filmakers and photographers.

MAINSTREAM :

Taqwacore entered mainstream culture in 2010 when a Hollywood-esque fictional film inspired byThe Taqwacores premiered at Sundance 2010 in Utah.
