With a well-earned reputation as an Indiana Jones of world music, Robert Plant is well versed in sounds from every corner of the planet because he’s practically visited every corner of the world. The Led Zeppelin frontman documented his 2003 trip to Mali to perform at the Festival of the Desert which he is now sharing as part of an eight episode series on his YouTube channel called Zirka. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer described the experience to Rolling Stone as “a journey of revelation – one of the most illuminating and humbling experiences of my life.”
