If Celia Cruz was the Queen of Salsa, La India, whose real name was Linda Viera Caballero, was the Princess of Salsa. She’s an emotional singer with Puerto Rican roots but grew up in Bronx, New York.
She was a star of the New York Salsa scene, where her popularity brought hits like “Sedúceme,” “Sola” and “Sobre el Fuego.” Her debut album, “Breaking Night,” released in 1989 was generally dance pop with hip-hop influences. Her true Latin roots were showcased in the album “Dicen que soy” that was released in 1994. It stayed for several months on the Latin charts.
She collaborated with several big name stars of Latin music like Eddie Palmieri, Sergio George, and had a duet with Celia Cruz in the song “La Voz de la experiencia.”
