Chajj-Sota is an instrument used in the ‘giddha’ dance of Punjab. The word ‘chajj’ means ‘winnowing basket,’ while the word ‘sota’ means ‘stout stick.’ The stick is rubbed on the basket to produce a typical sound. Sometimes tiny bells may be attached to this stick to produce a different sound.

The dancers of the ‘giddha’ may perform with the chajj-sota themselves or separate musicians produce music with this instrument.
