Sylvia Telles (August 27, 1934 – December 19, 1966) was a Brazilian jazz samba and bossa nova singer of the 1950s and 1960s. Perhaps one of the most highly spoken of singers of the time, Telles preceded the advent of bossa nova, and then began covering songs by such influential composers as Antonio Carlos Jobim, and worked with others such Luiz Bonfá. She also did several tribute albums to Antonio Carlos Jobim. One of the most famous classic bossa nova songs was written for her by Jobim, it's namesake her nickname- Dindi. By the early '60s, she had made her first trip to America, recording U.S.A. with Barney Kessel (among others) for Philips. Her husband, producer Aloysio de Oliveira, proved instrumental in her later signing to Odeon and Elenco, two labels where he worked. Telles had just recorded her second tribute to Jobim, 1966's The Music of Mr. Jobim (or Sings the Wonderful Songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim), when she was tragically killed in a car accident. Sylvia is the mother of singer Claudia Telles, born August 26, 1957.
