A rising act in the world of Alternative Rock, The Kongos have formed a distinct style with influences ranging from all different grounds. The band is composed of four brothers including Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Daniel Kongos. Having endured life shaping steps moving from London to South Africa, and now to Arizona, the band is cultured from various different roots.
