Ethiopian music utilizes an unmistakable modular framework that is pentatonic, with distinctively long stretches between certain notes.
The music of the Ethiopian Highlands utilizes an essential modular framework called qenet, of which there are four principle modes: tezeta, bati, ambassel, and anchihoy. Three extra modes are minor departure from the abovementioned: tezeta minor, bati major, and bati minor. A few melodies take the name of their qenet, for example, tizita, a tune of memory. At the point when played on conventional instruments, these modes are commonly not tempered (that is, the pitches may stray somewhat from the Western-tempered tuning framework), however when played on Western instruments, for example, pianos and guitars, they are played utilizing the Western-tempered tuning framework.
Music in the Ethiopian good countries is commonly monophonic or heterophonic. In certain southern regions, some music is polyphonic. Dorze polyphonic singing (edho) may utilize up to five sections; Majangir, four sections.
