The manjeera is a traditional percussion instrument of BhÃ rata India. In its simplest form, this can be a pair of small hand cymbals. They frequently accompany folk or devotional music. It’s used in more than a few religious ceremonies of India, especially bhajans. The manjira is an ancient instrument. Pictures of it have been found in temples dating back to the earliest times. Manjira are frequently made of bronze, brass, copper zinc or Bell metal and connected with a cotton cord which passes through holes in their center. They produce a rhythmic tinkling sound when struck together. The sound’s pitch varies in line with their size, weight and the material in their construction. A player can also adjust the timbre by varying the point of contact whilst playing.
