    Can't see I recognize them. An (un)educated guess would be Mejance Anastacia as it isn't (or at least wasn't) uncommon to buy your own mejance pieces.

    Have you tried to contact the dancer herself to ask directly?

    Hmmmm.... I have a program on my computer that can ID a lot of music, even some middle eastern stuff. But not this one...

    Ditto. it had similarities to several other songs I've heard before but didn't match any one of them. Maybe you can contact the dancer?


    BTW, did anyone else look at the dancers costume and think Barsoom? No? Just me?

    Strappy costumes seem to be the thing right now. Haute couture bondage wear for dancers.

    I like the costume, although that skirt would terrify me to wear.

    It's a nice performance and she looks pretty.

    I don't recognize the song, but she uses it a lot.

    Anastasia DALIDA Biserova Анастасия Бисерова Ya Msaharny
    https://youtube.com/watch?v=dJ4IavBH3-U


    She often tags the name of the music in her clips, so the fact that this is called "Mejanse" in two more YouTube descriptions makes that a strong contender for the title. The last video labels it "Ya Msaharny", but it doesn't sound to me like the famous song with that title, although that wouldn't preclude the possibility of a different melody with the same title. Between my insufficient Arabic and the sound quality, I can't get a good handle on the lyrics. Is he singing "Anastasia" or "Ana + [some word in Arabic I don't know, since 'Ana' in Arabic is the first-person-pronoun equivalent of 'I' in English]"? No clue, but the singer vocalizing those "ah"'s comes across as way more baladi than I'm used to associating with Umm Kalthoum. Long story short: I am of no help.

    Anastasia is certainly a highly trained dancer who invests a lot in her professional presentation, but perhaps she is the sort Dina is (somewhat hypocritically) criticizing in that other video currently circulating. I can't say I recall ever seeing another dancer go into the splits so aggressively that it looks like she is slamming her crotch onto the floor for an accent like Anastasia does, but maybe she took an inspiration from Nabaweya Mustafa, filtered it through the modern Eastern European style, and dialed it up to 11.

    She has some very pretty and expensive (and more revealing than I'd dare to wear) costumes, but I'm not feeling the one in the original clip. To me, it looks like she went to the atelier and said, "I want a skirt that looks like a red tablecloth got burned around the edges, then got attached to a sequined thong." Just not my taste.
