A folk instrument is an instrument that developed among common people that usually doesn't have a known inventor. It can be made from wood, metal or other material. It is a part of folk music. The instruments can be percussion instruments, different types of flutes, the bow and different types of trumpets.

The cavaquinho is a Portuguese folk instrument.

Some instruments are referred to as folk instruments even if they do not meet the criteria for classifying a folk instrument because they commonly appear in folk music. An example would be harmonica.
