Indra is an artist, songwriter, dancer & vocal coach hailing from Barbados. The daughter of a parang musician from Trinidad & Tobago and Barbados born engineer was raised in part by her late grandmother, an indigenous Kalinago woman. As a teenager, Indra’s talents for singing and songwriting were recognised by the legendary artist Eddy Grant who became a musical mentor, producing two albums released on his Ice Records label.

She went on to become one of the most prolific backing vocalists in the Caribbean and was chosen to represent the Caribbean as an acoustic folk artist at several music expositions worldwide including Midem (France), WOMEX (Denmark), ‘South By South West’ SXSW (USA), WSIS (Switzerland) & Caribbean Music Expo CME (Jamaica). In addition to a thriving singing career, she has toured extensively throughout Europe, North America, and the Caribbean and now runs one of the leading Caribbean lifestyle blogs Its Joy Within

Indra lived in Jamaica for a time, songwriting for artists such as Nadine Sutherland, Luciano, Natel and Mr. Vegas, for whom she wrote several songs on his album including the hit song, Sweet Jamaicawhich charted #1 on MTV Africa & #1 in the German Reggae Charts, #1 BBC 1Xtra and #7 Billboard reggae charts. She also recorded songs with Rory StoneLove such as ‘Journey’ which received great support by David Rodigan on BBC radio. At the BMA Music Awards Indra was nominated for best Inspirational/ Gospel Artist and she was also awarded for a significant contribution to Caribbean Music by the University Of The West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.

After much travelling, Indra moved back to Barbados, living in the countryside and spending the days farming, hiking, recording in her home studio and fine-tuning her homecooking skills. In 2021, Indra travelled to Europe and recorded the recently released album ‘Kingdom Call’ with producer Kris Kemist of UK based label Reality Shock Records and in 2022 went to Jamaica to complete the album started with StoneLove due for release in 2023.

“Our words are like food

When we serve them, let’s make them good

Might not be perfect but try it, we could

Never know someone’s timeline in this ah life

Be kind, even if you need to draw them a line

In a cold, dark world keep shining a light

When winds collide, there’s a change in the tide

Everyday it’s time (to) start look inside

No matter who’s in sight…” – TABLES TURNED

“It would normally be quite difficult for a record company boss, to fairly comment, and be honestly critical of the works or general artistic merit of a single artist on his label. There is always the possibility of “going over the top” for one artist at the expense of another, or all others on the label, or worse yet, to come to the label. I find myself quite often in this position, because the artists I represent tend to be controversial in some way or other, as invariably, they hold very strong life and artistic positions. The artist Indra certainly qualifies in this department. While other females have been copying the latest version of the American white male’s fantasy, Indra has been digging deep into her Caribbean roots in order to find that which is closest to her spiritually and musically. When all is said and done, it’s all about the music, and Indra to my mind has demonstrated that she has learned her trade well. In every department she ranks among the best there is, and I find no difficulty in saying, that across all entertainment disciplines, she is the best and most naturally gifted female artist to have arrived on the Caribbean entertainment scene. Hopefully it won’t be too long before the rest of the world acknowledges that the same should be said for everywhere.” – Eddy Grant (C.E.O. Ice Music Ltd & Related Companies)

Indra has become virtually unstoppable… She is, as her namesake proves, much like the rain. Strong and powerful, yet refreshing, with the morphemic ability to dance, write or sing. Destiny seems to be drawing her down fulfilling new paths to success.” –Kurama Magazine
