I am Carnaval is an autobiographical song by Elisete - rhythmic and energetic just like her. Elisete feels she came here to make the people happy and she simply lives that message every minute of the day.
‘I am Carnaval’ is not a metaphorical statement, it's more an informative description of Elisete's life.
It starts when she goes out into the street full of color with colorful and stylish clothing, positive energy and lots of smiles.
She spreads joy in every moment of her daily life with lots of love and in the 7 languages she speaks.
Each verse in the song is a different moment in her day and together they create this happy mosaic that is Elisete.
For every person on the street she has a kind word and she leaves a trail of unconditional human love and a great love for life.
A journalist who interviewed her on Sheinkin Street in Tel Aviv and saw her communicating with the environment in this way simply crowned her as Queen of Sheinkin.
Elisete performs a lot in homes for people with special needs. Giving a lot of love and receiving a lot back.
Some of the tenants have a cognitive level that is not high but everyone without exception is responding wonderfully to her music because her communication is non verbal - she communicates with them through emotions, through music, through the heart - when she performs she truly is the Carnaval.
So come with Elisete to this happy journey and each one can be the Carnaval too!
Get Out! - For the Pride Month, I was happy to collaborate with Yaron Malachi and together we wrote the song Get Out.
The song was written with the hope that one day the life of the gay community in Israel and around the world will be much easier.
That no child would be thrown out of their home because of their sexual identity and that no one should be afraid to love without differences of religion, race, sex and gender.
Every person struggles sometimes for his place in the world. In the gay community the struggle is more difficult and sometimes it is even an internal struggle.
The song encourages each and every one to first accept themselves with all their colors. This is the first significant step.
Not be afraid or ashamed of who we are.
After we will love and accept ourselves it will be easier to go out and find our place in the world.
The song takes on an even stronger meaning after such a difficult period of plague and after we also went through a war in Israel.
We need to leave all that is not good for us and come out into the light of a new day, strong and with our heads held high.
Yaron and I believe that we are all part of one soul and once we all understand this it will be much easier and also happier to live here on planet earth.
We hope that the day is near when we will receive as equals all the communities and all the congregations.
That we will live happier stories, stories without fear of being who we are, or in what we believe, stories with mutual respect and a happy and good ending!
So Get Out, be proudly who you are, banish the darkness, accept yourself and give a chance to love! Get out!
Shalom - a new song! Elisete is an ambassador of peace, of joy and of universal love. She invites us all on a joyous journey to unity and universal love. The song 'Shalom' (Peace) was born in a time of war and distress and this is its story:
Elisete, like all of us Israelis, experienced the war in Gaza with the alarms and the runing to the shelters. During one of the breaks between the alarms, Elisete sat in Gan Meir in Tel Aviv with her dog Mishka in her lap and tried to return for a few minutes to balance and calm. In these moments, the song Shalom was born.
Shalom is a ballad, a prayer, a musical information journey on the path to renewed sanity.
Elisete who devotes all her time to promoting universal love and joy has found herself praying for such a basic thing - peace.
Peace in the simplest sense - of cessation of war and coexistence. After stopping war comes the time to stop hating and most importantly to stop being afraid of the other. The other is also us and the hatred of the other is self-hatred.
Love is the key to peace, liberation and true joy. So come on everyone and stop being afraid, hating, alienating and fighting and instead of all that - just love and live in peace!
Give love a chance - Elisete's new album was released and that is all the Elisete asks from us: Give love a chance. So basic, so important, so easy. The love that Elisete offers, in fact, urges us to give and receive is a universal, selfless love. A love that contains within it all the other types - love for ourselves first and foremost, love for others, acceptance of the other, love for nature, animals and plants and especially for life wherever they are.

In the song A lonely bird Elisete takes us one step further into her inner world.
She is sensitive, empathetic, optimistic and not afraid to find her true place alone.
She unites sight with the animals to show us what we as a race are doing to nature and in fact to us - because we are part of nature.
Her message is touching and it’s easy to identify both with the animals trapped in the smoky forest and with the allegory of a sensitive person alone with his truth.
Elisete believes that caring for nature will help us care for each other.
She is optimistic and hopes we will join the mission to save ourselves and our planet.
Born in Brazil she is very sensitive to the fate of the Amazon which is under constant human attack.
A lonely bird is her second song protesting against the systematic extermination of the rainforests: the flora, fauna and natives that this is their home.
In My Amazonas hope she was the voice of the Indians mourning their burning home. This time she lets us gaze through the eyes of the animals.
Like its predecessor, in A lonely bird Elisete chose English from among the 7 languages she speaks to bring awareness to as large an audience as possible and help create positive change in the world.
The guitars are played by the wonderful guitarist Arik Shahar. The arrangements are by Raz Burg.
The clip was filmed by Elisete's production and edited by Roby Laville from Italy, with whom Elisete aired a program in Italian and collaborates in many fields.
Dear friends, due to the situation I decided to bring you some Brazilian joy together with awareness for something important that will allow us to improve things - the mask.
It is important because the mask is compassion. Compassion for ourselves and all others.
Melody and lyrics - Elisete
Arrangement - Raz Burg
Enjoy the song and wear the masks.
Elisete wrote the song I am a Drag Queen as an empowering song for the LGBTQ community and for anyone still struggling to show all his colors.
The song emphasises that we must find a cure and vaccine for the homophobia and racism epidemics.
Elisete loves people for who they are and the song is a celebration of our life.
It sends an empowering message to the LGBTQ community but actually addresses everyone from the joy and acceptance tribe, everyone believing in diversity and colorfulness that accepts every person as he is.
Elisete hopes we’ll soon understand we are all one, each one is a full universe, each one has his unique colors and it’s not always easy to pave our way in the world when you are different.
Elisete loves colors, enjoys dressing in many styles and loves styling. She is no stranger to the need to fight for the right to be who you are and she’s very supportive of the LGBTQ community.
When Elisete takes part in the pride parades in her many costumes she sees myself as a drag queen of honor and that was the seed for the birth of the song.
Elisete urges us all to celebrate life, color, joy and human diversity and to give everyone a place under the sun.
In the clip Elisete changes styles and costumes at a dizzying pace and give a taste of the feeling of being Elisete in this world.
Elisete hopes you will join the celebration and learn to accepteach one and especially yourself as you are.
