I am Carnaval, the ninth album was be released - In 'I am Carnaval', Elisete returns to her Brazilian roots in a vibrant Israeli perspective.
The urge for a Carnaval album in Hebrew stemmed from her shows in homes for people with special needs. Elisete saw that her music in Brazilian rhythms reaches directly to the hearts of the residents - even those who are completely enclosed in their own world - and they respond wonderfully because the communication is direct, from heart to heart.
Elisete turned this direct communication along with her love for people and music into happy songs that her audience sings with her already at the first hearing.

Brazil used to be the perfect freedom fantasy for Israelis: sun, beaches, wildlife, beautiful people and lots of freedom, joy and music.
Recently we confined ourselves to Israel and it’s fun to have Elisete - both a Brazilian-Israeli singer and also a sharp-eyed Israeli patriot to remind us - Brazil is here!
Israel is filled with wonders - freedom, sun, beautiful people, mutual help, wonderful nature, good music and a lot of joy. All that is needed is a musical reminder from Elisete:
“My journey in this album is on the seam between Brazil and Israel and about how much they
are interconnected in me. I feel that the more I become Israeli I simultaneously become more Brazilian as well.
It is this paradox that I wrote ‘Brazil is here’ about. The song is accompanied by an amusing
clip with quite a few characters including ‘Shoshke’ by Zeev Engelmayer as the Girl from
Ipanema. I hope you will like it!”
So take a break from the race and go out dancing here in Israel because as Elisete says - 'Brazil is here' in the best possible sense.
Elisete works with determination and diligence in creating joy
for the use of everyone. That’s her.
Happy Song is a musical instruction manual that
Elisete wrote to help us rejoice.
What's good about Happy Song is that with six verses and
one catchy chorus Elisete gives a winning recipe for life.
Each advice is simple and easy to apply when taken to heart.
Since not everyone is consistently acting positively it’s good that such a song
comes and gives us a reminder.
To rejoice and not to be angry, to face difficulties without despair,
to be sober and not blurry, to choose positivity, warmth and family,
to choose our friends carefully, to accept every person as he is
and to be at peace.
It is so typical of Elisete to take so many tutorials for life,
distill them and dance us along the way.
For Elisete, everyone is equal and everyone should be a part of life,
so in the clip Elisete films in Jaffa as a symbol of coexistence
and hosts Sima - an older woman (Elisete calls her Simush)
who shows that dancing is possible and necessary at any age.
So take a break from the race and go out dancing because as
Elisete says in the song
'A happy life has very clear rules'.
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!
