Wonka is a very different group and the music is not limited by any rules or etiquette:
The playing is unique and the musicians different attitudes and background from various idioms is mixed spontaneously.
No compositions or restrictions are applied and everything is created in the very moment.
Everything is allowed nothing banned.
Wonka is also very Scandinavian in its attempt at organizing FREEDOM !!

"I don't think we should rehearse at all before recording it would somehow destroy it. I
don't think any band ever has become any better by rehearsing!"
"I demolish my bridges behind me, then there is no choice but forward"
I play electric and acoustic bass ,4 strings fretted and fretless bass, "I think music should be free, like painting with your eyes closed" I live in a small village in the north of Sweden. For as long as I can remember music has always been around me and my family. (folk, rock and jazz ) I first picked up a guitar at the age of 13 just for fun. In the late 70s everybody had to be in a band and I ended up playing bass. We had lots of fun, unaware that we were getting practice playing together and making songs. In the 80s I played in a few bands in different styles, made demos, played gigs and had big dreams. I want to create landscapes and new sounds. Today the computer is a very helpful tool.
