Castanets are a percussion instrument (idiophone), used in multiple cultures. The instrument consists of a pair of concave shells joined on one edge by a string. They are held in the hand and used to produce clicks for rhythmic accents or a ripping or rattling sound
The origins of the instrument are not known. The practice of clicking hand-held sticks together to accompany dancing is ancient, and was practiced by Australian Aboriginals, Greeks and Egyptians. In more modern times, the bones and spoons of the jug band music can also be considered forms of the castanet.
