Xena: Warrior Lyrics

The music for the show  Xena:  Warrior Princess has Bulgarian roots. 

In fact, the bagpipe-sounding instrument you hear in the introduction is a Bulgarian bagpipe called a gaida and is made from the stomach of a young sheep or goat.   The chanting in the show’s opening theme is actually sung in Bulgarian and sung by a Bulgarian choir.

The funeral dirge that Xena sang for Marcus in “The Path Not Taken” was a rough version of a song Lucy recorded without knowing the meaning of the words or even the language!  There wasn’t time for her to sing a studio version, so they had to make do with the rough edit, making it sound as good as possible.
