Hoda Sultan & Samiha Tawfiq

This is a scene from the 1953 Egyptian film ‘Ghaltet al Omr’ (The Mistake of a Lifetime).  Samiha Tawfiq is the dancer and Hoda Sultan is the singer. There’s something for everyone here, a bit of bellydance, some debke, some slide guitar and (sort of) hula.
Hoda Sultan was married to Egyptian actor Farid Shawki (‘The King of Third Class’) for many years. She died in 2006.
