Ghungroos are made with brass and they are tiny bells tied together to a cloth which is worn above the ankle on feet while performing classical dance. You will also find ghungroo tied to either leather or other material
The sounds produced by ghungroos vary greatly in pitch depending on their metallic composition and size. Ghungroos serve to accentuate the rhythmic aspects of the dance and allow complex footwork to be heard by the audience. They are worn immediately above the ankle, resting on the lateral malleolus and medial malleolus.
