Israeli singer songwriter Gilad Segev and very good friend of The Noise Network Chief Executive Officer Nick Kontonicolas had a career highlight this month with a performance at the Israeli Consulate in Shanghai, China.

The event marked 25 years since the opening of the Israeli Consulate in Shanghai and 27 years since the establishment of formal diplomatic relations between China and Israel.

The ceremony was christened ‘Cherish the History, Brighten the Future’. Children from both China and Israel sung ‘Amen’ together and Gilad Segev performed in concert creating a rare insight to the merging of Chinese and Israeli cultures.

The China – Israel alliance goes back to World War II when China provided shelter for Jewish refugees. The seeds between the two nations back then have blossomed into a close cultural relationship. Israel now welcomes over 100,000 Chinese tourists every year.

In January, Gilad Segev grabbed the attention of Noise11’s New York based Chief Operating Officer Nick Kontonicolas. The two have since become good friends. Mr. Kontonicolas saw Gilad’s international potential through the cultural curiosity in his music. “Gilad’s music represents a catalyst for bringing cultures together,” Mr. Kontonicolas says. “Gilad operates his music career with a structured business model that is open to the opportunities that collaborations with other nations can present and that overlaps with the Noise11.com philosophy”.

Gilad’s cultural music project is named Passerby. His video with Yemen’s Ravid Kahalani has since generated over 1.2 million YouTube views.

Gilad Segev surfaced on the Israeli music scene in 2004 with his song and title track from this debut album ‘Ashshav Tov’. He has since released three more albums.

As the Israeli Consulate celebrates 25 years in Shanghai, China Gilad Segev has facilitated a unique merger of music from Israel and China.

“Gilad has a unique approach to a music career. He is globally focused, culturally aware and his music has the ability to connect different national flavours to create new sounds,” says The Noise Network’s founder and CEO Paul Cashmere. “The Nick Kontonicolas and Gilad Segev connection was indeed timely. Noise11 is always on the hunt for culturally significant artists on an international level. It is exciting monitoring such a unique artist as Gilad as the music industry starts exploring talent outside its borders”.
