Design and Construction of Chimta:- Chimta is a type of traditional instrument which is needed for Punjabi folk music. It consists of long, flat piece of steel or iron that is pointed at both ends and folded over in the middle. A metal ring is also attached near the fold and there are jingles or rings that are attached along the sides at regular intervals.

Sometimes there are seven pairs of jingles and the rings are plucked in a downward motion to produce tinkling sounds. Chimtas with large rings are also used at rural festivals while ones with smaller rings are often used as accompaniment to Bhangra dancers and singers of traditional Indian hymns.
