Andrea Parodi (Porto Torres, July 18, 1955 - Quartu Sant'Elena, October 17, 2006) was an Italian singer from Sardinia. He is known for his vocals with several groups, including Coro degli Angeli from 1978 to 1987, and Tazenda from 1988 to 1997 and again 2005-2006, as well as his solo career.[1][2]

His work, including that with Tazenda, blended folk roots of Sardinia with rock and Italian pop, bringing international attention to the island's culture, including Sardu.[3] He worked extensively with various international artists.[citation needed]

He was director for a video about Tazenda and some documentaries on Sardinia, and was producer for other artists, such as fellow Sardinian, Marino de Rosas.

He died from cancer, before fully completing planned work on the album, Rosa Resolza, with Elena Ledda, which was released in 2007.

A museum exhibit was established in 2010.[4] In 2015, the Sardinian town of Nulvi dedicated a new park to him.[5][6] His legacy also endures in the Premio Andrea Parodi, an annual prize for World Music.[7][8]
