LATE NIGHT WITH INDIA

La India, or simply India, is a Puerto Rican singer and songwriter of salsa and house music. She has been nominated for both Grammy and Latin Grammy awards and won the Latin Grammy Award for Best Salsa Album in the past, but it was this song that brought us queens to the dance floor each week, where we would dance and have some serious church to this ditty, I Can't Get No Sleep... which would always mix into her other classic, the tribal sounding, Love and Happiness. There'd be the stand and pose, the runways, and voguing...pre Madonna. I don't even think a floor was left at the end of the night. India was also very short, somewhere over 4', but don't let that fool you...she could belt out! Good times.....
