Good to know about this. Was not aware of it though. My kid in 3rd grader had a lesson on different instruments used in the world and they had to select one and write about it...She selected Instrument of India and the one they talk about in the book was ghatak..(Picture of a Gar=gri in a broden way made by khumhars (Pot makers ) called gadda and in description also said that it was a clay pot. I was surprised that among all the amazing instruments we have they selected this in the elementary class???? Or was it a popular instrument in the past..I didn't know so just curious if KB ji u know and i was ignorant.

In Carnatic music, there is an instrument called the ghatam. It is an earthen clay pot used to produce a wide range of sounds. You will hear it quite frequently in Carnatic classical and in film music.

Listen to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the theme song has this instrument in there.

I dont like the Ghatam or the Thavil. Love the Mridangam and the Veena, and an instrument called the Tuttoori, corresponding to the Shehnai in Hindustani. You'll hear the Tuttoori in every marriage down south.

There's a saying in Kannada - 'tuttori hodkoladu' meaning blowing your own trumpetLOL

The only musician, IMHO, that used the ghatam and thavil in great use is Laxmikant Pyarelal!
