Born in Barcelona into a family deeply entrenched in Catalan cultural heritage, Clara Domingo started her formal musical studies at age 5. Living in the south of Spain, Clara’s interests burgeoned in Spanish traditional music, especially flamenco.

Clara has performed with flamenco companies Flamenco Fire and Jaleos Flamenco including concert appearances at Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Brisbane City Hall, Woodford Folk Festival and Cygnet Folk Festival.
