|Chronological and political information|
As a teen, Bonduna formed a band called Sonic Free and with his education, had the skill to not only perform, but to run the band's business affairs as well. When the New Order was declared by Emperor Palpatine, much of Sonic Free's music was banned by the Imperial Board of Culture. The IBC falsely claimed the band used subliminal messaging to coerce their listeners into rebellious acts against the Empire. The majority of the band was arrested, and later killed in a prison brawl. Bonduna managed to evade capture and fled to the Mid Rim where he was spotted and a hefty bounty was placed for his capture.
Skawn Bonduna remained at large throughout the Galactic Civil War.
