about

Antonio Carlos Jobim wrote this piece especially for Brazilian singer Sylvia Telles whose nickname was Dindi. In the December of 1966, just a short while after Telles had recorded this piece with guitarist Rosinha de Valença, she was killed in a road accident in Rio de Janeiro. It's a lovely, lovely tune. We love performing it.

lyrics

Oh Dindi....
If I only had words
I would say all the beautiful things that I see
When you're with me
oh my Dindi

Oh Dindi...
Like the song of the wind in the trees
That's how my heart is singing Dindi, happy Dindi
When you're with me

I love you more today
Yes I do, yes I do
I'd let you go away
If you take me with you

Don't you know Dindi
I'd be running and searching for you
Like a river that can't find the sea
That would be me
Without you my Dindi
