Nakadia (DJ)

Nakadia (DJ)

Nakadia (Mungphanklang), is a female DJ from, Ko Samui, Thailand's second largest island, which lies in the Gulf of Thailand off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus. It's known for its palm-fringed beaches, coconut groves, mountainous rainforest, plus luxury resorts, spas and now a famous female DJ.

I have personally visited the little island of Koh Samui in 1998 when putting the BBC Radio 1 Millennium plans together. In 2004 I met Nakadia who was just stepping out into the world of being a DJ. I advised her then and over subsequent years on how to keep positive in a difficult path for her, not only as a female DJ but also as a DJ from Thailand where the attitude towards women from the area is often misogynistic. Nakadia has kept going, week by week, month by month and now has a fantastic reputation around the world as a DJ. She is an inspiration to millions of young female dance music fans living in the Eastern part of the planet. A great young DJ and I'm proud to say I helped a just a little but the best bit is that Naka used her DJ income to build a house for her Mum and family on Koh Samui, what a beautiful journey. Music is magical.
