Gisele Bomentre (Brazil)

This is Brazilian born bellydancer Gisele Bomentre performing during a game show on Lebanese tv. She became a well known performer in the hotels and nightclubs of the Middle East, firstly in Lebanon and later throughout the region. Her career in the Middle East really started when she came to the attention of tv director Simon Asmar. To place Gisele in the Lebanese bellydance timeline, she’s of the same era as Amani, Bushra, Samara and Australia’s Amera Eid. Gisele has since returned to her home country of Brazil where she teaches and performs and has developed a career as a singer.
Trivia: Simon Asmar, who’s credited with starting the careers of bellydancer Samara and singer Fares Karam amongst many others, was released last year after spending 12 months in jail while local police investigated his links to a Syrian murder victim.
