The Ghungroos, Ghungharus or Salangais are anklets adorned with many bells, used in classical & traditional Indian and Pakistani dances such as Bharatnatyam, Garba, Kathak, Kathakali, Kuchipudi, Manipuri, Mohiniaattam, l ' Odissi, the Sattriya or the Yakshagana. Sewn along a cord, on an often very colorful fabric support or on a piece of leather, the bells serve to accentuate the rhythmic aspect of the dance by marking the time, and also allow the public to better follow the movements. complex movements of the dancers' feet emphasizing each gesture. True musical instruments with very advanced technique, the Ghungurs allow all Indian rhythms to be performed and resonate with each step of the dancers, thus making them enter into a rhythmic joust with the percussionists who accompany them. The number of bells on the bracelet depends directly on the technical level of the dancer: thus, a child will begin with 30 to 50 bells, and will add more as their technical progress goes, up to more than 200 bells for experienced dancers. .
