Here’s a daily dose of brief cultural history: two immigrants from Berlin, Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, met in the 1920s. They bonded over American jazz and moved to the Big Apple together, forming Blue Note Records-one of the country’s most eminent jazz record labels-in the process. And this year marks 75 years since the label was first formed.

So, to celebrate, the Goethe-Institut is hosting a month-long music, film and arts festival to celebrate the origins of the label. For a comprehensive list of the festival’s events, check out its website.
