This is a short piece by Lebanese dancer Nariman Aboud (ناريمان عبود). The clip’s from a Lebanese tv game show. Nariman wears a red bedlah and in this clip she performs with a troupe of debke dancers .
Hermeen is the dancer in the dark costume in this scene from the 1955 Egyptian comedy ‘Al Saad Waad’ (السعد وعد) which starred Ismail Yassin. Featured in this scene along with Hermeen are singers Nagah Salem and Mohamed Salman.
A performance by Lebanese bellydancer Howaida el Hashem probably from the 1980s. The game show was on LBC in Beirut. But floral shorts? Hmmmm.
In Arabic her name is written as هويدا الهاشم = Hwayda el Hashem. Her name has the ‘el’ in it, so we might as well use it. It seems to be a case of you say ‘Howaida’ and I say ‘Huwayda’….or Howida, Houwaida, Howaidah or Huwhyda or Hachem, Hashem, el Hashem, el Hachem, Alhashem or Hachem.
As you see this is from the boys in Punchbowl.
Lebanese singer Sabah along with a debke troupe in a scene from the film ‘Ayyam al lulu’ (Days of Pearls).
Folkloric tableau with debke troupe. This is another conversion from a really old VHS tape so the colour is a bit questionable. Who the main dancer is I don’t know.
