And a TANGO from the same movie CARAMEL...
For the ones who LOVE with their veins, their true passion, their hearts and souls.
Magical theme from my movie of the moment : CARAMEL, by director
The soundtrack of the movie matches its contents in all its sensibility, shine and beauty.
Delicate work made out of women's hearts.

Lebanese movie CARAMEL...
Lebanese director Nadine Labaki DID IT again...MARVELLOUS work in this magical movie about Women's internal labyrinths of love, loss, fragility and strenght.
The hidden emotional world of women who are ALIVE, who LOVE with all their blood, heart, skin and soul...such an intense treap inside myself.
I am in love....
I watched it in awe and with tears of compassion, sadness and joy in my eyes.
The sensuality of it all jumps out from each scene of the movie like a crazy, cute canguru...I am in love with this movie and confirm that Nadine Labaki is one of my favourite Women in the Middle East.
Beautiful, talented, so bright that it almost blinds me...:)
Om Kolthoum dilemas and other internal business!

Cairo, the 29th October, 2010
( as usual)!
One more night of pure fun with friends. 'Cause life cannot be only about hard work, right?
Lots of what I call silly dancing ( as opposed to my professional dancing), Coca-Cola on ice and cuban cigars, laughter and pure non-sense that feels so great.
Right now, searching for new songs for upcoming shows. This music search has become an addiction very close to the BOOK READING on my Number 1 addiction chart.
Insanity is a proposition when our ears and mind are creating on a daily basis with such intensity but...what can I do? Aren't all artists a little crazy?!
I could not escape it...wouldn't want to!

Me and my eternal love affair with BALADI...
There are only a very few things that give me such pleasure as Dancing. If you talk about a good awadi with my favourite accordeonist, aaaaaahhhh.................. the difficulty to top that becomes immensely higher.
My musicians have their haxixe, their shishas and other drugs that make them fly even before entering the stage. Maybe because I love to go against the tide, I never drink or smoke anything. EVER.
So, here I am with my drug of choice: PLEASURE. In this video, the pleasure I get from the music shows so clearly that I could blush if I ever was ashamed of having a blast with my body and soul. But I am not ashamed. I am happy and proud.

Song to love and dance all night long...........
Egyptian disco music at its best (and the singer is cute too!)
Cairo, the 25th October, 2010
For my man...
So in love (ask God how is it possible for this to happen right now?!).
Because Passion and all the men I loved have always been my biggest inspiration when I dance, here it is a song by Ragheb Alama to retribute a little of all I have been blessed to receive.
When you're in love, everything tastes better and my DANCE grows..............
If you're not prostituting yourself with a rich guy who can back you up on so many levels and you're all by yourself in the middle of this jungle, I wish you good luck and lots of faith because it's TOUGH, really tough down here...

Back to the STAGE!
Every time I return to the stage, I do it as a new person and life, facing constant changes and challenges I always cherish mostly because I wish to grow and there's no other choice anyways. You have to go with the flow as Zen masters would wisely tell you, baby!
If God gives you lemons, you don't complain and make lemonade without quitting of the juice you REALLY want to make in the end.
From some of the harshest, sour lemons come the best lemonades. I have unlimited faith in God/Universe and all its Kindness towards me (as kind as I try to be to myself and others).
From tomorrow, a new season of shows will start and I just can't wait for it...lemons, oranges, strawberries, let them all come to me and I will make the best of each one of them.
