“Famously “introduced” by Eddie Palimieri in “Llegó La India via Eddie Palmieri,” Linda Viera Caballero quickly made a name for herself as La India, one of the biggest voices in salsa. But before Celia Cruz would dub her the “Princess of Salsa,” she got her start in the South Bronx, where she was a founding member of the Latin Freestyle group TKA, and cut a solo record with Freestyle legends John “Jellybean” Benitez and her husband “Little” Louie Vega. After “Llegó La India via Eddie Palmieri,” she blossomed into salsa royalty and never looked back, going on to work with Cruz and Tito Puente, and winning Best Salsa Album Latin Grammy for her album Intensamente India Con Canciones De Juan Gabriel.
