De Gebroeders Ko is a Dutch musical duo, consisting of the brothers Ton and Gerard Koopmans. Their name literally means "The Ko Brothers" and they are known for their Dutch spoofs of Boten Anna by Basshunter and Dragostea din tei by O-Zone.
Their 2007 single "Duiken in de zee" is based on the melody of Funiculì, Funiculà, a famous Italian song written by journalist Peppino Turco and set to music by composer Luigi Denza in 1880.
They have made a single "Vuvuzela" named after the South African instrument vuvuzela for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa.
Songs of De Gebroeder Ko not only became famous in the Netherlands but also within the German Mallorca scenery. German versions recorded by Mickie Krause were hits in all German speaking countries.
