What's new with Elisete
An interview with Brazilian actor and TV host Rodrigo Faro and a new episode filmed in Italy – A TV November
In a beautiful Tuesday I made my pilgrimage to Jerusalem to visit the Mahane Yehuda market for an interview with the lovely Brazilian and TV host Rodrigo Faro for his TV program in Brazil Hora de Faro. At the same time in Italy the new episode of the program Salotto feel the 90 – that I flew to Italy to film together with Roby and Maury – was released. It is a very fun episode, the kind that only Brazilians and Italians can do together.
A TV interview with lovely Brazilian actor and TV host Rodrigo Faro
Hello Friends, I had a great Tuesday! I had the honor and also the great pleasure of getting interviewed by the lovely Brazilian actor and TV host Rodrigo Faro for his Brazilian TV show Hora do Faro. We filmed the interview in the Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem and it was simply a wonderful experience. The crew was also Brazilian and the whole entourage wandered around in the colorful market enjoying the colors, scents and sounds. A very colorful and well-kept place. A wonderful combination of real live market with boutique shops and lots of happy people that enjoyed our presence there. We made the interview as we were walking and talked about Israel, my music and Brazil. At the end of the tour we met an Israeli guy that was born in Russia that knows and likes my music that asked for, and also got my single 'Capoeira' from my new album 'Simply Elisete'. The show will be broadcast on the New Year special and I will update you on that.
The radio chapter of the Italian program 'Feel the 90' was released to radio this Friday and the TV chapter 'Salotto feel the 90' will be released on TV and internet next Friday 31.10.14. This is a special episode for me because I flew to Italy to record it. I have a very good chemistry with Roby and Maury and although we did not physically meet until now the meeting was just like of old friends. The recording in Italy was a funny, happy and good experience and the program edited by Roby is funnier than ever. Roby, Maury and I communicate in a way that only friends who are also Italians or Brazilians can communicate. Kind of flowing fun that is hard to explain but you can see and enjoy yourself. The combination of ease and humor gives a sense of never-ending fun. You are invited to listen to the recorded episode and watch it on the Internet. I hope you will enjoy as much as I enjoyed recording it.
The article in the local newspaper in Tel Aviv - a tribute to my music and my work explaining Israel abroad
The article published in the local newspaper of Tel Aviv was written by charming reporter Tomer Koren. I enjoyed sitting in his room at the newspaper and talk about my work in Israel and abroad both in music and explaining Israel abroad. I told him the story of my long journey from Brazil to Israel with all its intermediate stations. This journey still continues in my attempt to define my music self. We talked about my experience as a Brazilian and an Israeli and a citizen of the world, the success in Italy and Russia, the anti-Semitism I experienced and my way of coping and also about my releasing the need to get the recognition from local Galgalatz and the freedom gained by this release and by the recognition I get abroad. We also talked about my need to be an unofficial double ambassador - Israeli and Brazilian. We talked about my new album, 'Simply Elisete', which is a snapshot of my musical state of mind and about the variety of languages I speak and sing in and the joy of direct communication with my audience all around the world. When I opened the newspaper I had a wonderful surprise. Tomer took our long conversation and distilled it to its pure core. I really enjoyed reading the output of our conversation.
