José "Cheo" Marquetti (April 26, 1909 – March 29, 1967), was an important but underappreciated Cuban singer (reginero and sonero) and songwriter in the guajira-son style.
Marquetti was born in Alquizar, Cuba. He was the son of "El Lucumi" Marquetti, an Abakua member of Los Chinos Buenos, a white, black and mulatto band whose members dressed as Chinese. He started his career in 1930 as a singer with the Sexteto Camagüey in 1930, then in the later 1930s as singer of danzons with the Belen Puig Orchestra as well as Ernesto Muñoz's Conjunto. He then joined a number of septetos, among them Septeto Cauto, led by Manuel 'Mozo' Borgella with whom he first recorded in 1940 (including the song Efi Embemoro - the first Afro-Ñáñigo song to be recorded). This was followed by stints with Septeto Hatuey, Septeto Facenda and the famous Septeto Habanero. He is also said to have been a member of Septeto Cuba, Alabama de Abelardo Barroso, Jóvenes del Cayo, Dandy del 40, La Sonora Piñón and Septeto Mora.
