His Biggest influences and inspirations were from artists such as Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Sam Cooke, James Brown and Prince as well as British and American Rock Pop bands such as The Police, Peter Gabriel, Genesis, Paul Simon. He was also influenced by the Jazz Legends John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Bill Evans, Herbie Hanckok and many more, who defined his personality as a musician, performer, and composer.

Gen Nady was forced to leave the ex USSR and was thus persecuted by the rebel Azerbaijani military regime for being a human rights activist and for his disagreement to participate in a civil war between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Thus, Gen Nady became "a man without a country".

Then he discovered and mastered Afro-Peruvian music and rhythms from the World Music singer and Grammy Nominee Susana Baca and the well-known Afro-Peruvian percussionist Julio "Chocolate" Algendones... He integrated these newly learned styles such as Festejo, Lando and Zamacueca from Peru As well as sounds from a vast range of Latin American influences derived from the music of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Brazil to create a unique fusion of multi-cultural sounds that are reminiscent in his works as a composer and performer.
