Notes: C, D, Eb, Gb, G, A, and Bb - Key: C - Origin: Ethiopian - Category: Octatonic Scales
The C Kaffa uses eight notes per octave. Because of this same reason it is a member of the so called Octatonic -scales that have Eight-note (or Eight-tone). On the piano keyboard, it is made up of three black keys: Eb, Gb, and Bb and four white keys: C, D, G, and A. This combination makes this scale - as well as the C Ambassel, C Ararai, and C Bati - as great choices for composing or improvising Ethiopian music.
If we take a look a the key signature of the C Kaffa Scale we can find it has three flats and no sharps. Therefore, on sheet music you will find three accidentals on the score. The notes of this scale are: C, D, Eb, Gb, G, A, and Bb.
