Elisete - Singer, composer and song writer, released her first album 'Luar e Cafe' (Moonlight & Coffee) in April 2004 and her second album 'Gaagua' in March 2006.
'Luar e Cafe'
The album is the summary of a year of intensive work trying to portrait through music her life in Israel and in Brazil. The album was received with enthusiasm and got excellent reviews.
The songs are played in numerous radio stations in Israel and video clips of various songs are shown in the Israeli music channel (Channel 24).
'Gaagua' (Longing) - The second album
The album resembles Elisete: An almost impossible mix of simple words that touch deep in your sole with Brazilian rhythms and melodies that just make you dance. In Gaagua Elisete goes beyond song and lyrics writing and singing and she is actively involved in all the production stages including the arrangements.
Elisete tours Israel with her band in a unique show sweeping the audiences of their feet. In her show Elisete blends her original Hebrew songs with the Brazilian classics in Portuguese. The band comprises 5 talented musicians that also contribute from their talent to the musical arrangements.
In addition to her show Elisete performs with the Jazz guitarist Uri Bracha in a Brazilian Jazz show, with Alon Ochana in an electronic music project named 'Alef 3' and she initiates other projects.
Elisete also collaborates with other Israeli artists from different fields of music: Idan Raichel in his new project, Si Heiman, Bezalel Aloni and others.
The story in short
Elisete was born in Brazil and came to Israel in 1991 directly to the Gulf war that was the background for the period when she acquired her Hebrew. Her life story is a long Saga with optimistic conclusions. Elisete says she sings to bring joy to the Israeli people. Cynics reading this declaration will laugh. Cynics hearing her say it will be engulfed by her magic and believe it.
With this drive and with her energy and joy Elisete sings about life in the most Israeli perspective and also the most Brazilian one. The lines of Elisete have warmth, simplicity and a lot of love. Her voice and rhythm take us to her unique Brazil that is always in her heart.
Anyone who wants to experience a truly unique musical experience should run to Elisete's next show. If you will buy her album you will not stop listening to it.
