Alexandra Legouix and the Sunflowers release their hotly anticipated EP ‘Let’s Go’ on Feb 28th.
A sophisticated but accessible fusion of Latin, jazz, soul, reggae and pop influences. "We make music that people can relate to on many different levels... think about it... chill to it... dance to it... make love to it...”. Funky, modern, relevant lyrics and tunes set to sensual Latin-flavoured grooves.
“Excellent… A force to be reckoned with”

“A great band…that I will be following with great expectations” Big in the Game
