Percussions Claviers de Lyon
Percussion ensemble

Gilles Dumoulin (artistic director), Sylvie Aubelle (educational coordinator), Jérémy Daillet, Renaud Cholewa and Lara Oyedepo



Since 1983, five passionate and demanding musicians rise to the challenge of always maintaining the existence of a band dedicated to innovative keyboards percussion, a unique quintet which develops a constantly evolving repertory.

Combining marimbas, vibraphones and xylophones, and always in the will of excellence and exchange with the audience, these musicians, daring and virtuoso, explore and exceed the types, forms and techniques, appropriate and recreate with talent the music of our heritage, arouse interest from contemporary composers, and ultimately offer an eclectic repertory made up of recognized transcriptions and creations, from Maurice Ravel, Darius Milhaud or Chico Buarque to compositions by Zad Moultaka, Moritz Eggert and also Gavin Bryars.

Constantly seeking innovation, the ensemble creates new scenic forms based upon music and collaborates with artists from wide horizons: La Vouivre dance company, the ensemble Les Lunaisiens, Red Note Ensemble (UK), Zalindê – batucada, or the pop singer Bertrand Belin.

Bertrand Belin & les Percussions Claviers de Lyon, recording, label Cinq7 / Wagram Music (Concert at Saint Quentin, may 2021) and a live performance streamed on France tv – Culturebox.
