What's new with Elisete
Elisete is a sensitive and optimistic artist striving to take part in the repair of our world.
As a person, as a singer with a mission and as a Brazilian, she is feeling the pain of the scorched and destroyed Amazon forests and she wants to cry out to raise awareness and stop the damage that man is causing to nature and thus to himself.
My Amazon hope is both Elisete’s prayer and a cry for change. She sees the images of the smoky forests, the dead animals, and the Indigenous peoples who mourn the nature that goes up in flames and her heart goes out for them.
Elisete thinks it's time for an immediate change, the madness must stop. Greed and apathy should make way for empathy for nature and for people and the earth in general. Only so, she believes, change for the better will come.
Caring for nature, will help us care for each other.
Of the 7 languages she speaks and sings Elisete chose to write and sing the song in English to bring her prayer to as large an audience as possible in the hope of contributing to the change for the better.
The album ‘Inspired by the sun’ is a rhythmic, happy and essentially electronic album. In fact, it is the mirror image of the previous album 'Quiet' which was acoustic, pensive and reflective. ‘Inspired by the sun’ deals with the healing of our pains and with acceptance of life through rhythm, light and joy. Elisete takes us with her caressing Brazilian way from pain and sorrow straight to the sun and the Carnaval. She has no illusions about the nature of the world, she simply believes that it can be corrected through universal love, music and true joy.
Inspired by the sun - Elisete's new single from the album on the way. Elisete seeks to bring light, optimism and joy to all, and the song ‘Inspired by the sun’ is about healing pain and accepting life by way of light and joy. Elisete takes us in her Brazilian caressing way from the pain and sorrow straight to the sun and Carnaval. The song is electronic, rhythmic, tribal and primal in its resonant drums and it charges the listeners with good energy and joy straight from the heart. It is an optimistic song about the good within us and the good sun that should guide us to healing.
This week I released a video I filmed in the Gay pride parade in TLV. I interviewed many people, including the mayor and his deputy, and the parade was a remarkable experience for me in many ways. The first thing that stands out in this parade is that it is really a happy event! It is more Purim than Purim and more Independence Day carnival than Independence Day. I hope you will enjoy it too.
In Japan an article from an interview I gave to Cleo Oshiro was published. Cleo is a Brazilian living in Japan and the interview was published in Biografia magazine in Portuguese but you can read it in other languages as well.
