Are these little girls fabulous or what?
This is Emirati singer Aitha el Menhali and the song is titled “Shams Al Mahaba”.  The filming was done in Al Ain in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. AD is one of the seven emirates that form the United Arab Emirates (UAE).  Local friends who’ve watched the clip say the girls’ dance is more Indian style as there’s more stamping than would be seen in women’s dance here in the Gulf. What do you think?
Background 1: The seven emirates that make up the UAE are Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai (probably the best known of the emirates), Fujairah, Ras al Khaimah (the name translates literally as ‘the top of the tent), Sharjah and Umm al Qwain.  Abu Dhabi serves as the capital of the UAE.
Background 2: This isn’t the entire clip.
Thanks Mark B. for the singer ID.
