The Laggutu is a folk percussion instrument performed in southern regions of Azerbaijan: Astara, Lankaran, Masalli and Jalilabad.

Just like the naghara, gosha naghara, gaval and other percussion instruments, the laggutu is widely used in modern ensembles and orchestras of national instruments. The laggutu is placed on a platform, and the performer plays it with two wooden sticks. Usually, the laggutu is 250x125x50 millimetres in size and made of walnut, apricot, mulberry or beech wood.[1]
