Grammy Award - Best World Music Album, 1992

"... three new tracks that continue the LP's exploration into different drumming styles from around the world."
- Rolling Stone

"... Hart proves himself to be quite the percussion sponge: West Africa, coastal South America and a bit of the Middle East converge in a melange that always has its heart in the right place ..."
- Variety

"It's all so politically correct your teeth may hurt, but at least the music itself is free of posturing ... a spirited series of all-percussion jams ... the ingenuity of the rhythmic cross-stitching hoists most of the record far above New Age blandness. B."
- Entertainment Weekly

The Grateful Dead's drummer Mickey Hart released this world music album in 1991 in conjunction with a book of the same title, both celebrating percussionists from different musical cultures around the world. Hart earned the first-ever world music Grammy Award for Planet Drum, which also hit number one on Billboard's world music chart. This 25th anniversary reissue includes three bonus tracks.

"This experience was about people wanting to come together: folks weren't culturally bound by their rhythms; they were in the right place at the right time for a new gumbo, a new way of coming together, egoless, in the spirit, to have fun and record a classic 20th century gamelan, which has always been the carrot for me. I always wanted to ring that bell."
- Mickey Hart

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
