Taheya Karioka (1946) تحية كاريوكا‎

Taheya Karioka dances in two further scenes from the 1946 film ‘Leabet al Sit’ (The Lady’s Puppet لعبة الست ) in which she starred along with Naguib el Rihani. The first scene has her performing onstage and in the second scene she’s performing wearing a ‘Silk Road’ themed costume as part of a movie.
Naguib El Rihani was for many years married to Badea Masabny the founder of the Casino Badea where many famous dancers including Karioka got their first big break.
