Nagwa Fouad (فؤاد نجوى)

I hope that everyone is having a nice summer!  I thought we would kick off August with some classic belly dance glitz and drama with Nagwa Fouad (فؤاد نجوى).  

I love this gold costume and how it moves and, as long-time readers know, I am obsessed with headdresses :)

I hope you enjoy this.  The caption below the clip is retained from The CaraVan.  I learn so much from her.

There are some performances that are considered iconic and this is one of them. This is Egyptian bellydancer Nagwa Fouad wearing a gold bedlah and carrying a fan. The music is 'Set al Hosn' which was composed especially for her by Mohamed Sultan. Trivia: Until 1981 Mohamed Sultan, the composer of this music was married to Fayza Ahmed who you may remember from 'Tamra Henna' with Naima Akef.

Just for some extra vintage glamour, I love this photo of her too

For anyone interested is seeing a live music and belly dance show right here in the San Francisco Bay Area, I will be performing with Khalil Abboud and Band at Tannourine Restaurant in San Mateo this Friday 8/4/2017.  Complete details for this night and my other performances on my Shows Page.  As you can see, we always have a good time.
