One of the best flamenco guitarists ever, Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia plays Zequinha de Abreu’s “Tico Tico”, the best-known work of the Brazilian composer. Because of the lack of written tradition, Tico-Tico is played in various melodic versions all over the world.
José Gomes de Abreu, better known as Zequinha de Abreu (September 19, 1880 – January 22, 1935) was a Brazilian musician and composer.
Abreu was born in Santa Rita do Passa Quatro. 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 de Lindóia.” Abreu died in São Paulo, aged 54.
