Fiumicino, 20 September 2017 – The new programme of concerts and jazz shows created by Aeroporti di Roma launches tomorrow - in partnership with Fondazione Musica per Roma – to entertain passengers, especially families with children, arriving to or departing from Leonardo da Vinci.

Children will be invited to sing, play or simply become acquainted with a musical instrument.
Among the songs selected to entertain passengers, are also adaptations of some of the most famous tunes in the popular tradition of Jazz, such as Mo Better Blues by Brandford Marsalis, Saint Thomas by Sonny Rollins, The Saints, Watermelon Man by Herbie Hancock, reinterpreted ad hoc to be performed in a specific space, such as an airport, where musicians can perform and also be in close contact with passengers.
