A cavaquinho player is called a cavaquista. One of the most important players and composers of the instrument’s Brazilian incarnation is Waldir Azevedo.

The cavaquinho is a small string instrument of the European guitar family with four metal or nylon strings. It is also called machimbo, machim, machete, manchete or marchete, braguinha or braguinho, or cavaco. It is a very important instrument in Brazilian music, especially for samba and choro. The samba cavaco is the connection between the rhythm and harmony sections, playing the rhythm comping. It is played with a pick, with sophisticated percussive strumming beats.
