American soul-funk band Khruangbin formed in Houston, Texas in 2007. Guitarist Mark Speer and drummer Donald Johnson first met through St. John's Methodist Church's gospel group led by Rudy Rasmus. They met bassist Laura Lee and formed Khruangbin around their mutual interest in Middle Eastern music. They worked on developing their own unique sound encompassing soul, funk, psychedelia and rock, releasing their debut album, 'The Universe Smiles Upon You' in 2015.

They toured with Bonobo and opened for Father John Misty, Massive Attack and Chicano Batman. Quickly making a name for themselves, they appeared at festivals including SXSW, Outside Lands and Glastonbury. Their second album, 'Con Todo El Mundo', was released in 2018 followed by 'Hasta El Cielo' in 2019.
