Nadaka was born and raised in Québec and began playing various instruments at an early age before settling on guitar when he was 11.
He decided to travel around the world when he was 16 and settled in India where he lived for the next 40 years, primarily in the international township of Auroville, founded on the ideal of human unity. His love and passion for Indian culture led him to study its music, learn different Indian instruments. He designed and crafted a unique instrument of his own, a guitar specially designed to play the subtle tones of Indian music that he likes to call the Raga Guitar or “Geet-Taar” (singing strings). From the early days of Indian fusion, he has been active member on the contemporary musical scene in India, recording and performing with many recognised Indian musicians such as A.R. Rahman, Ganesh-Kumaresh, Vikku Vinayakram, Selvaganesh & Shivamani. He also has a number of successful albums to his credit. Inspired by traditional Indian Ragas and rhythms, Nadaka plays his own distinct style of east-west fusion
