----------
Kongos (often styled as KONGOS) is a South African alternative rock/kwaito band, now based in Phoenix Arizona.

The band consists of four brothers: Johnny (accordion, keyboard, vocals), Jesse (drums, percussion, vocals), Daniel (guitar, vocals), and Dylan Kongos (bass guitar, lap slide guitar, vocals). They spent their childhoods in the city of London and in South Africa. They compose, record and perform in Phoenix, where they have lived since 1996. They graduated from Chaparral High School in Scottsdale and attended Arizona State University. The four men are the sons of singer-songwriter John Kongos. They are of Greek origin and have attended the Greek Saheti school in Gauteng, South Africa.

The film Holy Motors used their song "Come with Me Now" in the official trailer. WWE also used this song as the theme for their 2014 pay-per-view Extreme Rules."

The band's sophomore album Lunatic was released in 2012. 3 singles from this album topped various South African charts including all three of Tuks FM's charts and received copious airtime in South Africa.

In late October 2013, the band self-released Lunatic in the United States. In 2014, both "I'm Only Joking" and "Come with Me Now" began receiving noticeable exposure in the US, gaining momentum in airplay on radio and being featured in television commercials. "Come with Me Now" was used as the official theme song for WWE's pay-per-view event Extreme Rules and in the motion picture The Expendables 3. As a result, the band was signed by Epic Records in late January 2014 and the band re-released Lunatic. "Come with Me Now" had sold more than 70,000 copies as of March 2014.
