Planet Drum

Planet Drum is a group name used by Mickey Hart for percussion groups in the early 1990's and again at the end of the 1990's. The initial line-up of the band included Mickey Hart, Sikiru Adepoju, Zakir Hussain, Airto Moreira, Babatunde Olatunji, Giovanni Hidalgo and T.H. "Vikku" Vinayakram.

Though not credited to Mickey Hart rather than Mickey Hart and Planet Drum the two Hart albums released at the start of the 1990's involved the core of the Planet Drum band.
