Belly Dancing Beauties



I chanced upon these delightful ladies partaking in the noble art of belly dancing on my weekend in the fair city of London. These were the pick of the bunch from a fruitful afternoon of chazzer mining and beer drinking. They are straight out of Lebanon from 1975 and are part of a series of 'belly' themed vinyl which now needs to be tracked down (another sub genre to fill in) The Aziza record is conducted by Nicholas Dick (and a fine job of it he does of it as well) and is released on the VOS Voice Of Stars label. The record on the right is on the the 'Voice Of Lebanon' label and proclaims that it is at the 'Farid El Atrache Nightclub' That sounds and looks like it was one hell of a night out for those lucky enough to frequent that establishment in those party times. Any further information on these will be greatly appreciated; the Lebanese belly dancing revival starts here..!
