Nariman Aboud (Lebanon) ناريمان عبود

This is Lebanese bellydancer Nariman Aboud filmed as part of the Lebanese tv show ‘Studio Al Fan’. Nariman was originally spotted by Lebanese singer Melhem Baraket. Later she married singer Wissam al Amir and retired from public performing in the early 2000s to take care of their two children. In 2011 there was talk of her returning to the dance scene but whether that happened or not I don’t know. Nariman still regularly hits the dance floor at the restaurant in Jouneih in Lebanon though.
Trivia: One of Nariman’s signature pieces of music was “Ya bou el eyoun el soud” which was sung by her brother Michel. (I think it was done originally by Karem Mahmoud or Iraqi singer Nazem el Ghazali. Can anyone confirm please?)
