The youngest new name to keyboard innovators, her sound world is inspired by a melting pot of jazz, hip-hop and classical.
Immersed into the world of music by her family, DOMi’s devoted passion for the piano started young. At age 2 she picked up the drums and started learning piano.
After she completed her Piano studies at Nancy Conservatory, she went on to study at the internationally renowned Superior National Conservatory of Paris ((Paris Conservatory). At age 16, she was awarded the full Presidential Scholarship by Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she is currently studying. Her career started when 2 videos of her jamming at Berklee were posted on Facebook and reached almost a million views in 2 days. She went on tour with Ghost-note and played shows with Thundercat. She played for Mac Miller less than a month before he died on the Late show with Stephen Colbert.
Her primary influences are Robert Glasper, Joe Zawinul and Brad Mehldau.
