At sixteen he entered the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest and studied with Zoltan Tibay, winning first prize of the academy’s competition the following year. He went on to perform at several jazz festivals in Europe with amongst others Leo Wright, Carmell Jones and Slide Hampton and finally continued his studies of classical double bass at the Berlin Musikhochschule with, amongst others, Rainer Zepperitz. Norbert Duka is double-bass player with the German Opera Berlin, where he was appointed Chamber Musician in 1984.
