Indian tabla maestro Zakir Hussain has won a Grammy award as part of the winning team that created the "Global Drum" project.

The Global Drum was nominated under the Best Contemporary World Music Album category. Hussain shares the honour with Mickey Hart, Sikiru Adepoju and Giovanni Hidalgo.

The Global Drum tour brought Hart, Hussain, Adepoju and Hidalgo together in a reunion sparked by the 15th anniversary of the ground-breaking album "Planet Drum". Released in 1991 on the Rykodisc label it went on to earn the first-ever Grammy Award in the World Music category.

The tour also marked the resumption of an artistic relationship between Hart and Hussain that goes back to the late 1960s.
