Getchu vadyam, also known as gettuvadyam, gethu vadyam, or Jhallari, is a very rare instrument. It is a hammered lute, only 2-3 feet long. It is placed in front of the performerand struck with two small bamboo mallets. It is found only in the deep south where it is played along with the mridangam. There are very few artists today who play this instrument.
