Smile clap stick sounds!

Description: Clap stick sounds.

This is also used in Bhangra. A type of clapper, this instrument is seen only in punjab. It is used in dance such as giddha, bhangra. It is made on the same lines as the cane snake, sap a popular children’s toy. Where as the toy uses cane, the chhika sap is made of wooden sticks about a foot long and an inch wide. fourteen to 20 such sticks are joined lattice-fashion so that the total length is usually about one foot. By stretching and contracting the ends, the player produces a sound resembling many hands clapping in unison. A chhika sap may be painted or left in the natural colour of the wood; it is often decorated with tassles, pom-poms and even places of brightly coloured paper stuck in cut-out patterns. Sometime the pictures of movle stars are on the on the handholds.
