10 Aug Celebrating music’s Local Heroes with Volotea
Just like music connects people across borders, Spanish airline Volotea brings people together by focusing on airports in small and medium sized European cities. This not only unites families and friends without unnecessary fuss or unwanted stopovers, but it also opens up affordable opportunities to explore new territories, while always providing the best customer service.
To add some extra excitement to the Volotea experience, Record-Play has curated playlists featuring emerging and established acts from four different regions served by the airline – North Spain, South France, Greece and South Italy – which are sent to each person who has booked a flight to one of those destinations. It’s the latest project to make use of our global music discovery service MusicMap; you can check out the selections below…
To make it even easier for passengers to engage in the musical culture of their destination, Record-Play has scouted a Local Hero from each location: Palermo’s emerging indie quartet I Giocattoli, Athens musician and IOTAPHI frontwoman Ilya Darlin, McEnroe’s cult singer Ricardo Lezón from Getxo (Bilbao), and legendary Marseille hip-hop artists Chinese Man.
All of them shared their city’s best kept secrets with Volotea customers, including favourite hang-out spots, key cultural highlights and essential local tips. No sponsored content nor tourist traps, just the genuine taste of a local musician in his or her hometown. So before you choose your next trip, go ahead and read these four interviews – they’ll make your decision much easier!
