In 1992, after an encounter with pianist/composer Eddie Palmieri, La India produced her first salsa album called “Llego la India via Eddie Palmieri” which became one of the top salsa albums of the year.

In 2000, she got her second Grammy nomination and would then work on the album “Latin Songbird: Mi Alma y Corazon” which was released in 2003. The song “Seduceme” became a big hit and continued to build India’s net worth, gaining her two Latin Grammy nominations and another Grammy Award nomination the following year.
