May. 1-11: Washington Jewish Music Festival
The 14th Annual Washington Jewish Music Festival is in full swing, and bringing a variety of musical acts to venues across the D.C. area through May 11. Tonight you can hear Mika Karni and Kol Dodi perform a blend of folk, traditional Jewish melodies and African rhythms at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, or you can visit the Washington DC Jewish Community Center on May 7 to hear the fusion sound of Klezmer-Bhangra music.

May. 2: Mongolian Bling
Tomorrow night you can head to The True Reformer Building on U Street to see a screening of the independent film Mongolian Bling, a documentary about Mongolia's emerging Hip-Hop scene. Forget about nomads and monks! As Mongolia urbanizes, it's Hip-Hop that's beating into the hearts of the country's youth. But rather than forsake the past, a handful of artists are incorporating traditional ethnic music and customs into the art form. You can see the film at 6 p.m.

Music: "A Shiker Iz A Bloyzer-Shpiler (A drunk is a brass-player)" by Frank London's Klezmer Brass Allstars
