We might say that the Claxy story began in the 1990s. Long before the project was born, the diversity of Rio de Janeiro served as stepping stones to its artistic development. Formed by singer, composer, and pianist Clara Valente and musical producer and drummer Gui Gautreaux, Claxy drinks from MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) influences, adds delicious cosmopolitan flavors of afrobeat and pop, and pours the mixture over electronic music.

When still performing as Clara Valente, the duo released "Mil Coisas" (2014), nominated as one of the "Best Albums of the Year" in Brazil, reaching Top 10 on iTunes. Since then, they performed in more than 100 cities around the world, from Brazil to Argentina, USA, UK, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Hungary. The duo also delivered performances at the renowned SXSW.

These experiences culminated in the official birth of Claxy in 2020. A project that values authenticity, inspired by the dualities of life. Provides music for both moments of reflection and leisure. Displays strength and delicacy at the same time. And focus on an elegant construction of melodies within electronic music.
