First, congratulations to Mickey Hart, Zakir Hussain, Sikiru Adepoju and Giovanni Hidalgo. Their Global Drum Project (on Shout Factory) has just been nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary World Music Album!
This week also marks the opening of the long awaited Grammy Museum. It’s located on Olympic Blvd & Figueroa in Downtown LIVE L.A. And like the town and the industry, it’s really big: 30,000 SF with four floors of exhibit space for displays of artifacts, instruments, photos, room for film screenings, and lots of interactive exhibits. There is the promise that exhibits will capture the “legacy of recorded music and reveal the many ways in which it intertwines with social and cultural history.” See www.grammymuseum.org for lots more.
