Saeed Abdel Ghani (1982) سعيد عبدالغني

This is a wedding scene featuring tahtib performed by a male dancer. The scene’s from the 1982 Egyptian drama ‘Al Salakhana’ (The Slaughter House السلخانة ) but unfortunately it all ends very badly for the male dancer played by Egyptian actor Saeed Abdel Ghani.  The singer at the very beginning of the scene is Ahmed Adaweya.  The film starred Adel Adham (at the back wearing blue), Mohamed Reda (the actor not the dancer) and Madiha Kamal.  Also starring was Nagwa Fouad who’s in the audience in this scene wearing a red striped galabeya.  Nagwa Fouad’s shamadan dance from this movie is available on this channel.   Samir Ghanem and Leila Hamada play the bride and groom in this scene.
