La India
Linda Viera Caballero is a legendary Puerto Rican singer and songwriter of

salsa and house music. Using the stage name La India, she has been nominated for both Grammy and Latin Grammy awards, winning the Latin Grammy Award for Best Salsa Album for the Intensamente India Con Canciones De Juan Gabriel album. Born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, her family moved to the South Bronx when she was still a child. After recording her debut album, the Latin pop Breaking Night, Caballero decided to go in another direction and fell in love with salsa. In 1992, her first Spanish-language salsa album Llego la India via Eddie Palmieri (The India has Arrived via Eddie Palmieri), was acclaimed as one of the best salsa albums of the year; from then on Caballero became known to all as India. In 1994, India together with Louie Vega recorded a house-music single “Love and Happiness” (Yemaya y Ochún) that paid tribute to Santería. She later recorded Dicen Que Soy (They Say that I Am) which was a 2-time gold-certified Billboard hit and included the song “Vivir Lo Nuestro,” a duet with Marc Anthony. Later this same year Combinación Perfecta was released. In 1996, India worked with Tito Puente on Jazzin, an English-language album of swing classics with a Latin twist, and she also released India: Mega Mix. She sang a duet titled “La Voz de la Experiencia” (The Voice of Experience) with Celia Cruz, the late Queen of Salsa. It was then that Cruz gave Caballero her regal stamp: India the Princess of Salsa. Ever since, she has toured the world and received every possible award and acclaim for salsa ever known, as true royalty of the form.
