With an illustrious career that spans over 30 years, he is renowned for his extensive discography that includes producing, songwriting, performing and composing. Outside of the studio, he is known for his philanthropy and charity work.
Born in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti, Wonda was heavily influenced by the music of Bob Marley and Quincy Jones. He picked up a bass guitar at the age of 14 and immediately knew he had found his calling. He also taught himself to play the #guitar, #congas, and #drums.

His passion for the sonic helped to forge his reputation for creating the right sound for every artist he works with. His strong musical foundation paved the way for his illustrious career across every facet of the music industry.
Wonda’s greatest achievements include his work with The Fugees, who struck platinum in 1996 with their album The Score, which went on to become one of the best-selling hiphop albums of all time. The Score earned three Grammy Awards, including Best #RnB Vocal Performance, Best #Rap Album, and Album of the Year. In 1999, Wonda co-produced Supernatural, musical icon Carlos Santana’s masterpiece. The album sold over 15 million copies and was nominated for 8 Grammy Awards, including Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group for ‘Maria Maria’, which held the number one position in the charts for over 10 weeks.“ Read More: http://wondamusic.com/
