Dindi

"Dindi" ( - which sounds like Jin-jee in English) is a song composed by Antônio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Aloysio de Oliveira. It is a world-famous bossa nova standard. Jobim wrote this piece especially for the Brazilian singer Sylvia Telles. "Dindi" is a reference to a farm named "Dirindi", in Brazil, a place that Jobim and his friend/collaborator Vinicius de Moraes used to visit (according to Helena Jobim, his sister, in her book "Antonio Carlos Jobim - Um Homem Iluminado"). In December 1966, just a short while after Telles had recorded this piece with the guitarist Rosinha de Valença, she was killed in a road accident in Rio de Janeiro. :Céu, tão grande é o céu :E bandos de nuvens que passam ligeiras :Prá onde elas vão, ah, eu não sei, não sei.

English version

English lyrics were added by Ray Gilbert: :"Sky so vast is the sky / with faraway clouds just wandering by / Where do they go / oh I don't know."
