Last night was Video night for my students. I try always to cover lots of different styles, not just Egyptian. But I was always going to show some Suhair Zaki. Because Suhair.

Anyway, we came across this BONKERS!!!! number:


It had me at giant kittens. But I fell hard for the travelling orchestra. And the Tales-of-the-Unexpected Riq. Then there was the support dancers, doing what Egyptian Movie Support Dancers have been doing since time immemorial, i.e. all dancing slightly out of whack with each other and looking uncomfortable in their costumes, which are never as nice as the star dancer's costume.

Suhair herself is a delight. She's at her sweetest, wholesome-est best, and apart from the dodgy motif placement on her hip belt, she's wearing a really stunning costume.

Here was the playlist for last night. It's not in any order, but I've kept it public:

This is glorious. I especially love the slomo-effect-giant-riq-breakout moment. Thank you for sharing!
