Linda Caballero became known as India (based on her Indian Taino roots) among her friends because of her fine dark features and long straight black hair. In 1985, when Caballero was 14 years old, she became a backup singer for the Latin freestyle group TKA and was featured on the cover of TKA's second single "Come Get My Love." However she left shortly thereafter.
Under the tutelage of John "Jellybean" Benitez, a Puerto Rican DJ credited for discovering Madonna, Caballero re-recorded Jellybean's "Dancing on the Fire," making it an even bigger club hit than the original. She also contributed vocals on Jellybean's club hit "Mirage." When Caballero wasn't singing, she earned money as a part-time model.
Caballero signed a record contract with Reprise Records, which planned on making her the Latin version of Madonna. After recording the album Breaking Night, Caballero decided that she didn't want to take that route in her career.[1]
In 1990, at age 19, Caballero married Louie Vega. Although the marriage lasted for only a few years, they continued to maintain a professional relationship.
After Louie Vega teamed up with DJ/producer Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez and formed Masters at Work, the duo collaborated with India and produced the classic house anthem "I Can't Get No Sleep" followed by the less successful "When You Touch Me." Both songs were featured on the self-titled 1993 Masters At Work album on Cutting Records.
India remains a well-respected name in the house-music scene, but is more dominant in salsa music.
