Roma Jazz Festival: Jazz for change

Rome’s Jazz festival returns for its 44th edition with 14 concerts. Due to the decree issued on October 25th, this year’s edition will only be available online. The artists will perform live and you’ll be able to tune in and see the concerts from your device through a simple click.

Jazz music has always been used as a mean through which change has been told. And this year’s theme is dedicated to change. “Jazz for Change” is the title of this year’s edition–a program designed to view jazz music as a philosophy of life, between improvisation, creativity and sociability. It will investigate how jazz helps change people’s lives.

In the decades since its inception, the event has steadily elevated the genre – past headliners include musical icons like Miles Davis, Ray Charles and B.B. King. This year’s lineup is no exception, with an exciting roster of modern day jazz’s most prolific artists and prodigious newcomers. Not to mention world premieres, international guests and prominent Italian artists. The festival will be hosted in three venues: Auditorium Parco della Musica, MONK  and Casa del Jazz, in compliance with all safety regulations.

Yilian Canizares

The Area Open Project, Mario Tozzi and Enzo Favata, Alexander Hawkins and Hamid Drake, Salvador Sobral and Roberto Fonseca will be broadcasted in live streaming thanks to the collaboration with the Live Now platform, an innovative streaming service that allows you to watch concerts and sporting events from around the world. The streaming of the festival’s concerts can be purchased either individually or with a subscription plan.

The festival kicks off on October 31st at Auditorium Parco della Musica with Famoudou Don Moye, drummer and percussionist of the Art Ensemble of Chicago since 1969.
