Howaida Hashem هويدا الهاشم

Lebanese bellydancer Howaida Hashem in an early performance on Lebanese tv. I don’t know the name of the drummer but he continued to play for her for many years. Howaida was famous for her drum solos which often included a stunning Turkish drop. Her cane dance was good too. She retired in the mid-90s apparently.
If I had a dollar for every possible way her name’s been transliterated, I’d be a wealthy person!
