Chillador The chillador is a charango made like a small guitar, so with a (flat) back and separate sides (so not carved from one piece of wood).

Chillador is the name used in southern Peru for a charango smaller than the typical charango, made of laminated wood (not hollowed out) or armadillo. Vibrating string less than 30 cm, metal strings. Tuning: devil temple . The screamer carries 12 metal strings in five orders, the second and fourth orders carry three strings each.

It is in musical distinction of the high plateau, in which the instrumental variant of the charango called Chillador is configured,a Hispanic denominative that connotes the gaze towards indigenous expression, whose incorporation into urban music is analyzed in terms of friction between musicalities of indigenous roots and others of a "modern" or urban tendency.
