Ghungroo is one of the many small metallic bells strung together, to form a musical anklet, tied to the feet of Indian classical dancers of Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Kuchipudi, odissi, etc. Sometimes, it is also worn by Indian folk dancers and also used as a piece of orchestra. A single string of ghungroos can range from 50 to greater than 200 bells knotted together. Ghungroos produce sounds that vary greatly in pitch depending on their size and composition.
