From the Global Rhythm Magazine News:

The Planet Drum 2006 Tour reunites Mickey Hart, Zakir Hussain, 
Sikiru Adepoju, and Giovanni Hidalgo for a September series of West 
Coast shows in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the ground-
breaking album of the same name. Planet Drum was released in 1991 on 
the Rykodisc label and went on to earn the first-ever Grammy in the
World Music category. The tour is the groups first in almost a 
decade. It also marks the resumption of an artistic relationship -
between Mickey Hart and Zakir Hussain - that goes back to the late 

For Hart, this reunion is an opportunity to take Planet Drum into 
new places. “This is a deep drumming groove. We’re taking the 
archaic rhythm worlds into outer space. Planet Drum explores rhythm 
and noise… it’s a sound yoga of processed acoustic percussion headed 
straight for the trance zone that becomes a dance of ancient and 
modern worlds. Deep drumming is a skeleton key into these realms.”
