GHUNGROOS - GHUNGRUS
FEETBELLS FOR INDIAN DANCE

Choose from 6 different Ghungroos Models


GHUNGROOS / FEET BELLS for Kathak and Bharatnatyam

In Indian dancing so-called Ghungrus are worn, mostly around the ankles, in order to intensify acoustically the rhythmic movements of the feet. Ghungrus consist of a different number of little bells made from bronze or brass. As they hardly resonate, they represent precisely the rhythmic movements of the dancing feet. The number of bells per foot can vary from 6 to 200.These Ghungroos are not so much a nice looking accessory in combination with the dress, they are an important factor to increase the rhythmical percussion sound which is produced by the foot work. The more bells a pair of Ghungroos has the better the percussion sound will be. Also the quality of the bells is very important. The common professional Ghungroos which dancers use in Kathak should be at least 100 bells each feet. 2 x 50 bells are not enough to get the percussion result a Dancer wants, only for Children it will be OK. In Bharatnatyam we offer a professional pair of 50 bells each feet, this is enough for Bharatnatyam, but the bells should be of very good quality.

The Quality of the Ghungroos

1988 TARANG has founded a school for Kathak and Bharatnatyam where maestros from India are regularely teaching. Together with the teachers from India TARANG has selceted Ghungroos in high quality in regard to longlivety and best percussion sound which fulfill the demand of professional dancers. Also the workmanship of the Ghungroos fulfills the professional standard.
