His compositions involve feels of many genres but at the same time comprise a sound of his own - his voice and his rhythmic acoustic guitaring. Genres include modern folk, folk/ska, rock, slow-rock and many more. His influences are those from many. His compositions are available in both English and Malay. Dr. Wan Zawawi is a poet-singer cum social anthropologist, currently a professor at University Malaya.
