PARIS GiRLS ROCK was founded by Toli Nameless who landed in Paris in 2008.


Following a long music tradition in New York and successful international touring career , she fell in love with the idea of combining music and education. She said that ' it has always been my passion'. It was through her own pocket, in-kind, micro-monetary donations, partnerships, and dedicated volunteer workers that she has formed PARIS GiRLS ROCK.
