Gisele Bomentre (Brazil)

This is bellydancer Gisele Bomentre performing during a game show on Lebanese tv.
Gisele became well known in the Middle East, firstly in Lebanon but later throughout the region where she performed extensively. Gisele was known for her sword work as you’ll see in this clip.
If you wanted to place Gisele in the Lebanese bellydance timeline, she’s of the same era as Amani, 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.
Sorry about the jumps-and-bumps during this clip, its a conversion from an old VHS tape to digital.
