Original video "Palestinian tourist dancing in Italy" here: youtu.be/GSHTsyJlGbE
This is Palestinian dancer and choreographer Rima Baransi (Arabic: ريما برانسي) with her family in Trieste, Italy. Her father Assad Baransi (Arabic: الأسد برانسي) recorded this video while encouraging her to dance to the music. They were visiting the town as tourists.
I have been informed that the following is Rima Baransi's official Facebook page:

After a couple of days of work, searching and emailing, I have discovered who the violinist is.
In this video Slovak violinist Ivo Remenec is performing a violin adaptation of the song entitled “Comptine d'un Autre Eté: l'Après Midi” by French musician and composer Yann Tiersen: youtu.be/W5_xFH5wqKM
This song features in the soundtrack of the film "Amélie" (French title: Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain).
Ivo Remenec is a member of the "Adventure Strings" string quartet:

English translation of what is said:
Father (Assad Baransi): C'mon Rima! C'mon! Here I am filming, c'mon Rima for God's sake! For my sake! For my sake! C'mon start! [Do it!], C'mon Daddy! (here it's normal for Dads to call their child "Dad", and Moms to call them "Mom").
I was very touched by this video and wanted to use my video editing skills to try correcting in a graceful way the issue of the video turning between vertical and horizontal orientations found in the original recording here. → youtu.be/GSHTsyJlGbE
