'Azucar Moreno' is a duo of the gipsy sisters
Toñi and Encarna Salazar. Their career started in 1982
when they were asked to perform as the backing singers of their
brothers' group, Los Chunguitos. Then in 1984 they released
their first album "Con la miel en los labios" (With honey on the
lips) which included their first hit "Debajo del olivo" (Under
the olive tree). But the turning-point in their career came
with their song "Bandido" which represented Spain in the
1990 Eurovision Song Contest (ending up 5th). This song became
a huge hit in Spain and helped them conquer the European
markets. After "Bandido", all their albums went platinum and
increased their popularity in Spain and abroad.
The year 2000 is a triumphant one for Azucar Moreno.
They released their 10th album and took an active part in the
film "Gitano" (Gipsy), featuring Spanish dancer Joaquin
Cortés and French top-model Laetitia Casta, which will
be released this autumn. The two sisters did not only take
part in the original music soundtrack but also started their
acting career: in a scene of the film, they play the part of
two gipsy girls singing "Abracadabra", one of the songs
included on their new album.
