Hart’s Global Drum Project Hits the Road
Last night, Mickey Hart kicked off his October Global Drum Project tour at Seattles Nordstrom Recital Hall. In addition to Hart, this incarnation of the Global Drum Project features tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain, conguero Giovanni Hidalgo and talking drum wiz Sikiru Adepoju. The ensemble will hit fourteen cities throughout the Northwest, California, Colorado and the Midwest, including marquee performances in Los Angeles (10/9), Minneapolis (10/17), Chicago (10/18) and Houston (10/19). The Global Drum Project will also appear at San Franciscos Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival this coming weekend.
Hart recently reissued a number of records from his back catalogue, including his work with the Diga Rhythm Band, Planet Drum and Mystery Box. The records have been made available both on CD and through iTunes. The Global Drum Project also released a self-titled album last year.
