For quite some time I wanted to compose a piece of music with a bossa nova feel. Hearing the news that a Brazilian lady I met a number of years ago, while studying Portuguese, had got married and had had a child, was the perfect excuse. The piece is named after her daughter - Isabela.
In this piece I have tried to convey the feeling of the sun, sea, and sand, relaxing on the beautiful Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, in the vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, birthplace of the bossa nova.
This music also accompanies a video showing scenes for Rio de Janeiro and some of the famous sites there.
