The Lincoln Center
press release said: "Come join the sizzling
sensation — the “Princess of Salsa”
La India — as she heats up Lincoln Center
with “salsaton,” her term for a sound
fusion of salsa and reggaeton music designed to
keep your hips shaking and your feet moving. An
integral part of growth of dance music in discos
in the 1980s, La India crossed markets in the 1990s,
becoming salsa’s darling diva and the heir
apparent to continuing the genre’s legacy.
Her songs are infectious, her voice passionate,
and the beats compelling — a perfect combination
for a hot summer night."

Rivera was off-and-running and he got these images.
