Brazilian Girls is an electronica/dance band that formed in New York City in 2003. The band is known for their fusion of electronic dance music with tango, chanson, house, reggae and lounge music. The band consists of vocalist Sabina Sciubba, bassist Jesse Murphy, keyboardist Didi Gutman and drummer Aaron Johnston.

The band itself formed in 2003, while rocking out at a New York club, Nublu. While playing a weekly gig, the band wrote many of the original songs that would appear on their self-titled debut album, which was eventually released in February 2005.

In 2006, the band recorded the Talking Heads’ song, “Crosseyed And Painless” for the AIDS benefit album “Silencio=Muerte: Red Hot + Latin Redux” produced by the Red Hot Organization, as well as released their second album, entitled “Talk to La Bomb.”

The band returned in 2009 with their third album, “New York City,” which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronica Album. In 2011 Brazilian Girls collaborated with Forró in the Dark and Angélique Kidjo on the track “Aquele Abraço” for the Red Hot Organization's album “Red Hot+Rio 2.”
