Belly Dancer Tribute 1/2/12: Fifi Abdou (Cairo, Egypt). Thank you Fifi, for belly dancing in one of my all favorite music dance videos. I first saw Fifi dance on a VHS tape from Trytel International Video (TV1). I love this video! I don’t claim to know the whole story, but from what I can gather, Fifi is dancing for a soon-to-be married couple. The bride is crying looks like does not like her groom. She has a boyfriend on the side that comes up the back steps with flowers. But, the show must go on! It looks like the bride’s dad and groom have set up this party before the wedding complete with belly dancer, Fifi and singer – the dude with the obvious wig. Sorry, but I don’t know the name of the singer. At any rate, Fifi is doing an amazing dance at this party. I love her continuous Egyptian Shimmy that goes on forever. Very effective. I love the blue costume with belly cover, sexy, yet demure. The secret boyfriends brings flowers to woo the bride away from, but it is too late. The bride ends up coming down the stairs with the groom. Along the way in this video, other “dudes” show up to party. That one dude with the bad teeth reminds me of some uncles. Seems like the party gets started when uncle dude #1 shows up with his flashy bad teeth. This video so reminds me of real family functions. Enjoy!
