Comments:

Elisete Retter lives in Israel and records in Hebrew and Portuguese with dashes of English. This single contains a number of mixes of the up-tempo title song, all being of equal value. The song itself shows off Reiter's dynamic vocal range and the song mixes bossa and electronica well. If you think you'd like that this is for you. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)

First single from Minhas core/My Colors

Another soft and appealing tune that Reiter handles well. There's a slight rhythm underpinning it that works well for the song.

Second single from Minhas core/My Colors

"Fantasy" is an acoustic song that she sings beautifully. She really gets under the skin of the song and her vocals make it stand out.
