Gisele Bomentre (Brazil)

This is a performance by Brazilian dancer Gisele Bomentre during a Lebanese tv game show . Gisele became well known in the Middle East, firstly in Lebanon but later throughout the region where she performed extensively. She was noted for her sword work. To place Gisele in the Lebanese dance 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.
