Notes: C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, and Bb - Key: C - Origin: Indian - Category: Octatonic Scales
The C Raga Adana 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, Ab, and Bb and four white keys: C, D, F, and G. This combination makes this scale - as well as the C Raga Abheri, C Raga Abhogi, and C Raga Ahira-Lalita - as great choices for composing or improvising Indian music.
If we take a look a the key signature of the C Raga Adana 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, F, G, Ab, and Bb.
