The research draws on products of the printing press of Cyprus that describe the musical activity of the inhabitants during the period 1878-1960. The thesis examines the social and economical aspects that interrelate with the development of the music and the impact of the British colonialism on the development of the music culture in Cyprus. It focuses on the stratification of the Greek Cypriot society during the British colonial period and examines the music of the different social classes separately.
