1 Definition(s) from various sources:

Jhañjhā (झञ्झा) is a Sanskrit technical term referring to a musical instrument, first mentioned in Nāṭyaśāstra 4.253, after Śiva danced using Recakas and Aṅgahāras, and Pārvatī performed a ‘gentle dance’. Jhañjhā refers to “large cymbols”. The term is used throughout nāṭyaśāstra, which is the name of the ancient Indian tradition of performing arts, (e.g., theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects.
