Nagwa Fouad and Karem Mahmoud

Egyptian bellydancer Nagwa Fouad performing ‘Samra ya Samra’ with legendary Egyptian singer Karem Mahmoud كارم محمود‎ (1922-1995). There’s a story that Karem first noticed Nagwa at one of the first parties she was booked to dance at.  She was in tears and Karem, who was already a star, asked her why she was crying.  Nagwa explained that her musicians hadn’t arrived and so she would have to leave.  He said to her “Don’t leave, I will sing and you will dance”.
