José Gomes de Abreu, better known as Zequinha de Abreu was a Brazilian musician and composer.

Abreu was born in Santa Rita do Passa Quatro, São Paulo state. He is best known for the famous choro tune "Tico-Tico no Fubá" (1917), whose original title was "Tico-Tico no Farelo". Other well-known tunes he wrote were "Branca" and "Tardes em Lindóia."
