Abstract

The lyra-laouto ensemble is the most popular and enduring musical tradition in Crete. It is an almost exclusively male profession and pastime and as such embodies a complex synthesis of engendered values. Aspects of musical performance contradict the seemingly monolithic manhood ideals that inform it, revealing its role as a site of intense boundary negotiation.
