Born in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico, Linda Caballero was baptized “India” by her grandmother in honor of their Taíno Indian ancestry. Raised in New York’s South Bronx, India has been in the entertainment business since the early days of her childhood. A successful string of albums established India as one of the leading voices in tropical music, alongside the likes of Tito Nieves, Oscar D’Leon, Marc Anthony, and Celia Cruz. India is said to be Celia Cruz’s only legitimate successor. Even the legendary Tito Puente would bestow upon India the title “Princess of Salsa,” and jumped at the chance to record with her the renowned Latin Jazz Album, “Jazzin’.” India’s latest album “Soy Diferente” takes us on a musical journey that explores the depths of her experience as a modern woman. She takes her music to a new level by collaborating with power players in today’s Latin music scene such as Ivy Queen, Cheka, and Tito Nieves.
Melina León began her professional career as a teenager in musical groups such as Las Cherís and Rubí, Las Chicas de Puerto Rico, Merengue Orchestra and Paparazzi. In 1997 she became a soloist with her first production "Mujeres Liberadas," which represented the beginning of an ascending and successful artistic career. In 1998, she released her second album, "Con los pies sobre la tierra," which won numerous awards. In 2010 she recorded her third production "No Seas Cobarde" and was nominated and won “Premios Lo Nuestro” as tropical artist of the year. León’s most recent single "Dicen que yo soy mala" is the sequel to her iconic theme "Mujeres Liberadas."
