Sohair Zaki: an elegant brilliant Oriental dancer from some decades ago.
This appears to have been filmed sometime during the 1960s and 1970s, when a more burlesque and silly performance style prevailed in film.

Sohair Zaki's performance itself is classic and beautiful. You can read about Egyptian Cinema here. The two guys in the video appear to be Samir Ghanim and Ahmad al-Daif. Here's a link to the video on Metacafe (where they misspell her name).
