Today I'd like to share something a little bit different than my usual parade of stunning Egyptian belly dancers. This is a film clip of a Lebanese folkloric dance troupe. I absolutely love the colorful costumes, and of course, as anyone who knows me is aware, I am always smitten by a gorgeous headdress :).
The information about the clip below is from The CaroVan's Vimeo channel. She is an endless source of education and inspiration about Egyptian cinema and Middle Eastern Dance.
I believe the first song they dance to is Lamma Bada, a very old classic song. I am not sure about the second song, does anyone else know?
And for those of you who made it this far down the page, here is a photo of me in one of my many, many attempts to live out my classic film fantasies by dancing in a headdress :)
