There may be a gui to do this, but I don't know what it is,
you could try making a script to convert with ffmpeg, eg
for a in mp3 wma; do
for b in $(find . -type f -name "*.$a";do
cd $(dirname "$b")
ffmpeg -i $(basename $b) -ac 127 $(basename $b .mp3).ogg
That would find all the mp3 and wma files from the current dir
recursively and convert them to ogg with a bitrate of 127 Kbps.
So if your music files are in ~/MyMusic/ and/or in sub dirs like
~/MyMusic/Artest/Album Name/ it should work.
You can either use it as it is or use it as a starting point.
