July is the month for Korean drumming. There’s a concert at the Purcell Room on 17 July, and evening classes on Korean drumming at SOAS that week 17-21 July. As a culmination of that week, there’s a special drumming event in Russell Square on the Friday night, from 7pm.

On Tuesday 25 July there’s a BBC4 programme on extreme food: dogmeat and other delicacies.

Off topic I know, but there’s a feast of Japanese anime at the Barbican, 1-9 July, together with a couple of Japanese films with scores by Toru Takemitsu (Empire of Passion according to the website, plus Kwaidan and Woman of the Dunes according to their brochure). Also, Seijun Suzuki’s latest wacky film Princess Raccoon has just been released, to mixed response. The box office draw is the star Zhang Ziyi.
