"Dindi" (Portuguese pronunciation: [dʒĩˈdʒi] - which sounds like Gin-Gee in English) is a song composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Aloysio de Oliveira. English lyrics were added by Ray Gilbert. It is a world famous bossa nova standard.

Antonio Carlos Jobim wrote this piece especially for the Brazilian singer Sylvia Telles, whose nickname was Dindi. 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.
