Beginning in the middle of the 20th century, Cavour’s musical career was marked by going beyond musical interpretation. Over the years, he recorded more than thirty albums as a soloist and an equal number of recordings with ensembles like Los Jairas and the Dominguez-Favre-Cavour Trio.

In some of his concerts, Cavour improvised stories and tales, adding strange sounds from his charango while juggling it or adjusting the string tension to yet reach the right note.

He founded the Charango Museum in La Paz in 1962. Over time, it evolved into the Museum of Musical Instruments, which houses hundreds of pieces, primarily from Bolivia but also from other countries.
