Cassio Nobre (from São Luiz do Maranhão and now living in Salvador da Bahia) is a Brazilian stringed-instrument player and ethnomusicologist. Broadly speaking, he could probably be said to know more than anyone else alive (or not) about the viola music of the Bahian Recôncavo (this is not the bowed viola, but a guitar-like instrument rather, somewhat smaller and double-strung), having extensively researched such for his master's thesis as well as playing it himself.
Cassio works extensively with partner Julio Caldas in presentations covering a variety of traditional Brazilian guitars and guitar-like instruments, and they've released a CD entitled Viola de Arame.
He was music director for Quando Dou Minha Risada, Ha, Ha... (When I Laugh, Ha, Ha....), a CD recorded by primordial samba group Samba Chula de São Braz, featuring samba chula and samba-de-roda.
Cassio plays, among many other instruments, an instrument once popular in the Bahian Recôncavo and now very rare, the viola machete.
