This is a compilation of clips featuring Egyptian bellydancer Dina. Someone has replaced all the original music (including a piece featuring Fatme Serhan) by overdubbing ‘Min Habibi Ana’ (Who’s my Lover?) by Wael Kfoury and Nawal al Zoghbi.
Four short clips make up this compilation.
1. The first is from the 1951 film ‘Malek al Petrol’ and it puts many of today’s revealing costumes to shame.
2. The dancer in the second clip is Abeer Kamal.
3. No name so far for the dancer in the third scene whose performance turns into an onstage brawl.
4. The dancer in the final clip is Nadia al Jundi.
Thank you to simozimo09 for the dancer ID for Abeer.
More bellydance scenes from Egyptian films including Katy performing with Ismail Yassin, a wedding scene, a stage performance and a piece at the end from a 1946 film that shows that there was a wide variety of dance forms being shown in Egyptian cinema back in the 1940s.
All these clips are from the era of black and white films. The first dancer is Suzy Khairy, then there’s a group piece both from the 1960 film ‘Inni ataham’ (I accuse), followed by a Greek surprise and finally Farid al Atrache and Tahiya Karioka.
Bellydance scenes from some Egyptian movies from the 1970s. First, a Nubian theatre troupe, then there’s some scenes from the 70s, the dancer in green is Sohair Ramzy (its supposed to be a dance competition so the girls all dance to the same piece), then there’s a lovely piece by an unknown dancer (again the storyline is that its an audition), this is followed by the latest from Amr Diab’s movie ‘Ebka Kablny’ and finally some short clips of bellydancer/actress Nabila Ebeid in an advert for a upcoming programme.
This mix starts with two colour clips of unknown dancers. The red/black costume must have been a popular look back then as there are clips of Nagwa Fouad and Lebanese dancer Neriman Aboud wearing similar costumes. Both those clips are on this blog.
These clips are followed by a short black and white scene from the film ‘Bint Sharqiyya’ and finally a troupe of Nubian dancers in the background from a recent film.
