Someone on YouTube (courtesy of r/Survivor) made a piano cover of Russ Landau’s Survivor theme song (also known as Ancient Voices).
It’s barely a minute long, but it’s fantastic.
If you’re not aware, composer Russ Landau used to make his own variations of the theme in every season. He would use local instruments and various thematic elements specific to that Survivor.
I’m using the past tense here because sadly Landau left the show after season 27.
