Iconic Latin American videos from the 90s (2)

Sabor, Sabor was the first massive hit for Rosario, daughter of the famous Andalucian singer and dancer Lola Flores who performed at the opening of the Olympic Games in Barcelona.

Now I know that Rosario is technically not a 'Latin' artist, but this video definitely belongs in the set. The flooded crypt idea was inspired.

Shortly after her mother's death from cancer in '95 Rosario's equally talented brother Antonio took an overdose and died. Rosario disappeared from the scene for a while then reemerged with this elegy for her lost sibling, with whom she was very close. She later starred in Almodóvar's Hable con Ella in 2001.
