Pianist and composer, Clara Peya is considered one of the most original and unique creators that have appeared in recent times in the spanish music scene. She has a frenzied biography that goes from music, to theater and activism. This 2019 she has been recognized with the National Culture Award in Catalonia and her last record ‘Estómac’ (Satellite K, 2018) received the award of Best Album of the Year by Enderrock Magazine.
Musically, Peya is unclassifiable: she swings between chamber music, jazz, pop and electronics, always keeping the piano as the gravity center.
She is energy and feeling in its pure state and has a great commitment with freedom: of form, style and gender. Her personal way of playing has made her become one of the most scenic and transgressing Catalan pianists.
A contagious and torrential artistic personality that spreads throughout the stage and beyond.
She is a declared feminist and defines herself as “restless, visceral, intense and transcendent”. Clara Peya flees from clichés and, above all, believes in the power of art to denounce “my music is romantic-contemporary or punk-romantic.” Music is everything for her, she uses the piano to express herself, to convey ideas and to be free.
