Aluna Francis is one part of the two-person hip hop group AlunaGeorge, and 2013 seems to be their year. Together she and producer George Reid create an electronic sound that combines synth pop, house, and dub step with Aluna's R&B-inspired, british-accented vocals.

Aluna is half Indian and half Jamaican. Before her music career, she worked as a reflexologist (read: foot-rubber extraordinaire ) and was previously a member of the band My Toys Like Me.

AlunaGeorge is already pretty popular in the UK, having recently won BBC's Sound of 2013 contest, and now America is beginning to take notice of the talented duo. We can't help but think it might have just a little bit to do with Aluna. AlunaGeorge's debut full-length album 'Body Music,' is due out in July. Check out this video and more pics below:
