Azza Sherif عزة شريف

The wonderful Azza Sherif (عزة شريف) dances in a wedding scene from the 1976 film ‘Nebtidi Menain Al Hikaya’ (‘Where do we begin the story?’ نبتدي منين الحكاية )  This film has the same title as the old Abdel Halim Hafez song but it’s totally unrelated.
In this scene we see the bride, played by Suheir Ramzi, fleeing her wedding leaving a confused crowd behind. As the film progresses she becomes blind, falls in love with her psychiatrist’s friend, her sight is restored and there’s a happy ending.  The film also starred Saeed Saleh, Mimi Jamal and Samir Ghanem.

Azza Sherif (عزة شريف)


This performance by Egyptian born dancer Azza Sherif is a transfer from VHS video tape to digital but despite that, its one of the most inspiring and breathtaking performances ever.  The title of the song is “Qalo Zini 3amil 7ala”.  The song is Tunisian and was first released by a singer named Olaya.
Thanks to Badr al Asmari for the song title and information.
