    Suheir Zaki and Om Khoulsoum

    Yea. Loverly.

    She also does the Amal Hayati bit (top clip) using the music from the original record with vocals. It's a powerhouse.

    In terms of her being the first dancer to dance to Oum Kalthoum, check out Shira's article on the subject:

    Tahia Carioca and Soheir Zaki - Singing with Their Bodies? Dancing to Oum Kalthoum's Music?

    cool stuff!

    LOL, those new posts are like a faceoff of Souheir's two most unfortunate/subliminal costumes! I thought the infamous beaded merkin was bad, but that trefoil in the center of the belt on the "Enta Omri" clip is a formidable challenger.

    That's what all dancers should strive for, "singing with their bodies"!
