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."

New York Cool photographer Angelo Rivera was off-and-running and he got these images. Log onto for the fascinating story of La India's life.
