A night with the KONGOS

You may have heard their songs on the radio, but last night, the only way to listen to the KONGOS was to watch them perform live at Tanz Cafe Fourways ...

The Event was in support of the George Bizos SAHETI Bursary Fund (Click here to read more about it).

Who are they:

KONGOS is a rock band of four brothers — Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Danny Kongos. They grew up in London and South Africa and now write, record and perform in Phoenix, Arizona. They have been surrounded by music, studios and different cultures all of their lives as their father is non-other than a multi-million-seller South African singer-songwriter John Kongos.

I got to meet Danny Kongos in the crowd and he was very charming and down-to-earth.

Take a listen to "I'm Only Joking" taken from their new album Lunatic:

They have a carefully crafted unique sound: rock and indie fused with tribal, African tunes, their music is original. It gets your foot tapping and leaves a smile on your face when you hear it.
