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 people in general. 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.
Elisete speaks 6 languages and now she is learning 2 more: Russian and German!
