Zé Rodrix (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈzɛ ʁoˈdɾiks]; 25 November 1947 – 22 May 2009) was a Brazilian composer, instrumentalist, and singer. He was well known in his native country for performing with musical ensembles Sá, Rodrix & Guarabyra, Som Imaginário and Momento Quatro.

A native of Rio de Janeiro, José Rodrigues Trindade has used the shortened form as his stage name in career lasting over four decades. Som Imaginario, with another well-known member, Robertinho Silva, accompanied Milton Nascimento and Gal Costa[1] and, in 1971, Elis Regina's recording of his rock-rural "Casa no Campo" (with Tavito) became a huge hit.[2] During the 1970s, Sá e Guarabyra would continue as a duo while Rodrix pursued a solo career. Both acts played what they described as "rural rock", "a synthesis of the dream depicted in the American folk-rock of the '60s with the reality of upcountry Brazil".[3]

A longtime resident of São Paulo, Zé Rodrix died of natural causes at the age of 61.[4]
