French chanteuse and musician Isabelle Antena is a pioneer of bossa nova- and samba-inflected nu-jazz and electropop. She was a founding member of the original 1980s French-Belgian synthpop trio Antena, and in the 1990s led another group, the genre-defying Powaga Sisters to record three releases between 1993-2004. Alongside these projects, she has also carved out a remarkable solo music career in the last thirty years, selling over a million albums and winning fame and musical acclaim across the globe… From Camino Del Sol (1982) to Bossa Super Nova (2010), her cool latin, bossa, jazz and funk vibes have delighted ears and feet worldwide.

Originally Antena were a trio.
Antena discovered a sound all of their own (Camino del sol), light years ahead of its time but this exotic combination of indie, electro, pop and sambas was destined to be overshadowed
Thanks to Martin Hayles, in the summer of 1984 Antena signed a deal with Phonogram, who took a shot at cracking the single chart with Be Pop. At the same time Isabelle moved to London. The second single, a polished Hayles production of « Life Is Too Short », appeared in November, but also failed to make waves, and was all but impossible to buy outside Britain.

Despite the fact that Antena were releasing quality pop records with hip club appeal, the UK singles sold only modestly. It would be another ten years before bands like Saint Etienne, Air and Stereolab would make French pop hip in Britain again, and in the mean time, the years 1984 and 1985 proved a difficult time for Isabelle : « I signed to Phonogram in England and had to go and live in London. It surely was an experience.
