Hosna Solomon (1952) حسنة سليمان

This is a ‘Nubian style’ dance by actress Hosna Solomon (1925-1998) from the 1952 Egyptian film ‘Qaleel al Bakht’ (The Unlucky One قليل البخت) which starred Shadia and Kamal al Shinnawi. As you can see, while the music Hosna Solomon dances to is Nubian there’s very little folkloric component in her dance movements. The dancing is strictly Egyptian.
