This is a performance by Egyptian bellydancer Lucy (لوسى) in two parts. In this clip Lucy is wearing a black and silver bedlah with bizarre shoulder pads, ‘like a lizard’ was one suggestion. Born in Cairo and growing up in Mohamed Ali Street as Inam Mohammed Saad Abdul Wahab (إنعام سعد محمد عبدالوهاب) Lucy was soon dancing at weddings and nightclubs including later her own nightclub, ‘Parisiana’ in Cairo. She now has a successful career as a movie actress including an award at the Alexandria Film Festival in 1996.
Trivia: According to the web publication ‘Al Bawaba’ Lucy, “…considers 99.9% of Egyptian belly dancers respectable and honourable. Their repeated marriages is better than getting involved in illegitimate affairs.”
