José Gomes de Abreu, better known as Zequinha de Abreu (September 19, 1880 in Santa Rita do Passa Quatro – January 22, 1935 in São Paulo) was a Brazilian musician and composer who in 1917 wrote the famous choro tune "Tico-Tico no Fubá" (whose original title was "Tico-Tico no Farelo"). Other well-known tunes he wrote were "Branca" and "Tardes de Lindóia."
Because of the lack of written tradition, Tico-Tico is played in various melodic versions all over the world.
