Zizi Mustafa (1984) زيزى مصطفى

Bellydancer and actress Zizi Mustafa dancing in a scene from a 1984 Egyptian film titled ‘Al Mahzouz’ (The Lucky المحظوظ ) which starred Saeed Saleh, Farouk al Fishawi and Essad Younes.  The movie is about two real estate agents battling each other for a piece of land. The music Zizi is dancing to is not the same as the musicians are playing or miming to. The piece you can hear is ‘El dooma wa tekka’ by Khamis Henkish. I think it was on the ‘Delta Festival’ tape (Yes, tape. That’s how long ago it was!)
There’s a lot of confusion as there are two ‘Zizi Mustafas’.  One of the Zizi’s was an actress who died in 2008.  The other Zizi is the former bellydancer who is still very much alive and who’s the mother of actress Mena Shalaby .
