Indra is an artist, songwriter, dancer & vocal coach hailing from Barbados.
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 at several music expositions worldwide including Midem (France), WOMEX (Denmark), SXSW (USA), WSIS (Switzerland) & CME/UNESCO (Jamaica) then singing acoustic folk. 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, a labour of love at itsjoywithin.com
Indra lived in Jamaica for a time, working as a songwriter for artists such as Nadine Sutherland, Luciano and Mr. Vegas, for whom she wrote 7 songs on his album including the hit song, ‘Sweet Jamaica‘ which 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.
After much travelling, Indra moved back to Barbados, living in the countryside and spending the days farming, recording in her home studio and fine-tuning her homecooking skills. Recently in 2021, Indra travelled to Europe & recorded her forthcoming album entitled ‘Kingdom Call’ with producer Kris Kemist of UK based label Reality Shock Records and in 2022 traveled to Jamaica to complete the EP started with StoneLove.
Often onstage with her acoustic guitar, Indra writes and sings songs of freedom, lamentation and encouragement.
“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 is a woman of such intrinsic worth that she is valuable beyond any measure I know.” Founder – Omololu – The Children’s Foundation (Registered Charity #550)
“Where would I be without You by my side
With the waves of this world at high tide
So much ah fuss an’ fight, inside some filled with pride
But the truth will prevail it is right Yah
Keep we strong safe in Your arms…”
