ZEINA - Mohammed Abdul Wahab

This is the song we’re using for our Beginners’ classes. Here’s a little guide on the song to help shaping your mood in interpreting the dance.

The line ZEINA ZEINA WALLAH YA ZEINA YA ZEINA is being repeated over & over in the song and here’s what it meant: (Zeina is a female name that means the beautiful and the run on lines say: Oh Zeina, my God oh Zeina.

So this is the context, let’s interpret & dance with our own attitude towards this ‘desperate & yearning man looking at us with utter admiration!’ You can also listen to the original composition here (sung by 1 lead & group of chorus) , let me talk more abt Mohammed Abdel Wahab next time!
