Sheket

Elisete - Quiet

Quiet (Sheket) - the fifth acoustic album was released in 2016. 
Quiet is what Elisete seeks in her fifth acoustic album, just quiet. To understand why that’s the album’s name here’s what Elisete thinks about music, soul and quiet:

“For me happiness reveals itself in quiet. Inner quiet, outer, quiet in a dream. I live here in Israel, in the turmoil of the middle-east. Around me the days roll polluted with noise, anger and violence and I seek quiet moments with a soothing Brazilian wind and a pure sound. My new album is my clear island of quiet – a distilled sound of guitar and my voice – an album I longed to create, waiting for the right time. I hope that this album created from the heart will get to all those tuned to a frequency of tranquillity and peace and will be an instrument for achieving inner as well as outer peace.”

The album Sheket is a unique encounter between Elisete’s soul that yearns for quiet with her soothing voice that wants to pronounce the hope for peace and tranquility and the magical sound of Ron Laor’s guitar.
Elisete feels she is a double cultural ambassador – of Israel and Brazil and also an ambassador of the universal desire for peace and love. That’s why the album is written both in Hebrew and Portuguese with one song in Russian. Half the songs are new and were written especially for guitar and voice and half were included in previous albums and were adapted to this album with new arrangements of guitar and voice.

Elisete - Gaagua - Longing

Elisete called the album longing because although she feels completely Israeli she still has longing for the Brazil she left behind – the children on rooftops flying kites in the colors of Brazil and all of her childhood memories. Elisete uses the colors she brought from Brazil to draw our reality in her songs.
The songs reflect Elisete: an almost impossible blend of simple words that touch your soul directly with Brazilian rhythms that just make you dance. Elisete's optimism and her warm smile resonate throughout the album and allows you to be swept with the songs to the sunny Brazil she carries in her heart.
