After the successful series of concerts dedicated to Italian jazz from the Fascist era, Swing Power presents a new show devoted to the great classics of Milanese folk music, rearranged into the jazzy tunes that have always distinguished the Italo-Ticinese band. Ma mi, L’Armando, Faceva il palo, Nostalgia de Milan, Torpedo blu are only a few of the unforgettable songs that marked the era of postwar Milanese folk artists such as Giorgio Gaber, Enzo Jannacci, Nanni Svampa, Walter Valdi, Giorgio Strehler and Dario Fo. The band includes, among others, Claudio Sanfilippo, renowned author of songs for Mina, Eugenio Finardi, Pierangelo Bertoli and, at the same time, key figure of Milanese folk music.
