Description

These world-class musicians reunited in 2006 for a tour commemorating the 15th anniversary of their groundbreaking album Planet Drum. Released in 1991 by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, the landmark recording combined the talents and native traditions of some of the world’s percussion giants to create a joyous celebration of rhythm. The album went on to win the first ever Grammy in the World Music category, spent 26 weeks at #1 on the Billboard world music chart and set the standard for world music as a genre. Now, following their acclaimed 2007 album The Global Drum Project, this musical collaboration resumes with Hart, Indian tabla maestro Zakir Hussain, Nigerian talking drum virtuoso Sikiru Adepoju and legendary Latin percussionist Giovanni Hidalgo in a passionate evening of tranced-out grooves, elegant electronic programming and hypnotic tuned percussion.
