Igbo-Israel musician Moore Black Chi Mmadike organises the Igbo Israel International Music Festival.
Igbo Israel musician Moore Black Chi Mmadike is organizing an international music festival with Remy Ilona, an Abuja based lawyer, writer, and founding president of the Igbo Israel Union. Also working with the duo on this project is the National Times newspaper. The artiste who is better known by his stage name Moore Black, and who is based in Australia conceived the idea of holding the festival which is tagged 'The Igbo Israel International Music Festival' as a way of contributing to the growth of arts and culture in his homeland; Igbo-Israel; attracting investments in tourism to Igbo-Israel, helping Igbo-Israel artistes, among other reasons. The consortium which the trio has formed to stage the event which promises to be an annual event is going to hold the event in the last quarter of 2011, in one of the metropolitan cities in Igbo-Israel. The idea/project has began to receive important assurances of support from musicians such as Irene Orleansky of Israel, Ozoemena Nsugbe of Igbo-Israel, Nigeria, American Terry Hess, etc. Watch out for regular updates.
