Lights! Camera! Action! Dance! In the golden era of Egyptian cinema, no film was complete without at least one lavish oriental dance scene. Two of the brightest stars in the Egyptian film firmament were Samia Gamal and Tahia Carioca, who brought their renowned choreography from the Cairo clubs to the silver screen. This Piranha cd recorded in Beirut features a selection of songs specially written for Samia Gamal and Tahia Cairoca by composers of the magnitude of Mohamed Abdel Wahab or Farid El Atrache. Although particularly aimed at dancers of Raks Sharki, these recording will also bewitch anybody who appreciates the joyful and vibrant, langorous sounds of oriental music.
