Nakadia

Thai country girl turning global icon - this unique fairytale of the 21st century describes the career of Nakadia with a few words. Nakadia is loved for her music as much as for her personality and she is out to conquer the world with her strong tech tunes.

Growing up without running water in a rural village in Thailand meant the harsh realities of a poor life left no chance for a career in electronic music. However, after being invited to Germany in 2002, one night clubbing changed all that and filled her with a spark that transformed her life into what it is today: One of the world’s very few globally successful female electronic music artists. Fresh from the buzz of that night, Nakadia took turntables home to Thailand and started shaping her craft. Unguided by other DJs and with no club scene for inspiration, she practiced relentlessly to develop her own sound. It was only when she moved to the Thai island of Koh Samui in 2003 where she came into contact with a small electronic music scene and got some first practice in playing for European tourists.


By 2004, her first year as a full time DJ, she already performed 55 gigs across 12 countries. Over the next four years Nakadia found herself in the sounds of Deep House, Tech House and Techno. Ever since, this lovely young Thai girl has been bringing her underground sounds to the dance floors of legendary venues like “Watergate“ Berlin, “Cafe D Anvers“ Antwerp, “The Egg“ London, “D Edge“ Sao Paulo, “Lola“ Shanghai, and “Glow“ Bangkok, just to name a few. 

ANTS - one of Ibiza’s top events - heard about Nakadia and invited her for a first set at Ushuaia. After the incredible reaction, Nakadia is now part of the ANTS colony on Ibiza.  With far over 100 high profile bookings across the world each year Nakadia is already going strong.... But these are just the opening chapters of a truly unique career that so far has been nothing short of a musical fairytale.
