As part of her residency, Clélya invites "Crafting Quintet", a project that brings together five musicians offering a special repertoire for the occasion that combines their compositions. This concert offers them the opportunity to explore and share with the public the styles and aesthetics of each during a musical journey full of surprises.  

Born into a family of musicians, Clélya Abraham developed a passion for composition at an early age. Gradually, her efforts are concentrated around the piano, the young musician feeling more intimate with the instrument that allows her to create. At the age of 18, she turned to Jazz, Nu Soul and World Music (Africa, Caribbean, Reunion, Brazil), styles in which she flourished thanks to the freedom given by improvisation.

After many meetings during her years of study at the CRR in Paris, then at the Didier Lockwood Music Centre, and after a year of residency at the Baiser Salé Jazz-Club, the young pianist is at the beginning of a growing career. She multiplies concerts in various projects, as a leader or sidewoman (Abraham Trio, Mae Defays, Crafting quintet, Teddy Sorrès, Ora project, etc...).

This 2nd year of residency is therefore an opportunity for her to deepen her various projects, but above all to continue to explore and share new experiences, with renowned musicians like Arnaud Dolmen, Tilo Bertholo, Balthazar Naturel, Sélène Saint-Aimé, Samuel F'hima, Antonin Fresson... So let yourself be seduced and #SoyezCurieux!
