City, State, etc.:
Armandinho Macedo is the son of Osmar Macedo, one of the two inventors of the trio elétrico, the giant soundtrucks/moving stages that ply the streets of Salvador da Bahia, Brazil during Carnival.
Osmar also invented an instrument which he played in his early versions of the trio elétrico, the pau elétrico (electric stick), a cavaquinho (ukelele) neck tuned like a mandolin, mounted with homemade pickups. Over the years this instrument has been developed into what is now called the "guitarra baiana" (Bahian guitar), and Armandinho is its master.
Armandinho is also schooled in the classics of choro: Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim, Waldir Azevedo, et al.
