6:00 PM Russia Preventing Peace on its Periphery Russia has a long history of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, especially those on its periphery. Upon examination of Russia's foreign affairs, a pattern emerges: Russia encourages separatist movements, often arming or fighting on their behalf. By continuing to perpetuate conflict in regions such as Moldova, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Ukraine, Russia has exerted its influence over regional diplomatic processes, asserting its dominance in their internal affairs, strengthening its own presence and power. Drawing on international law and nationalism, Professor James J. Coyle will examine why Russia seeks to prevent the resolution of conflict in these divided regions.

7:00 PM Music: Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal When Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Ségal released their first collaborative album, Chamber Music, they caught the music world by surprise. Everything about this duo is unexpected: the Malian master of the traditional harp, or kora; the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop; and the elegant, soulful music they make together. Now, these two sonic voyagers have returned with Musique de Nuit ("Night Music") - an album which may not have the same element of surprise, but which may be even more spellbinding than its predecessor.

After years of touring together, Sissoko and Ségal have created their own hybrid tradition, one that draws on the ancient well of West African troubadour songs, the rich heritage of Baroque music, and an elusive but somehow clearly modern sensibility.

Admission/Cost: $25 - $30

8:00 PM Music: Dias de los Muertos with La Santa Cecilia Grammy-winning Mexican American roots band La Santa Cecilia has become the voice of a new bicultural generation in the United States, fully immersed in modern music but still close to their Latin American influences and Mexican heritage. From Mexico, Mexrrissey pay tribute to Morrissey's enduring legacy in that country. The Smiths' frontman has long been a favorite with Mexican audiences, raised on rancheras, mariachis, and singers who were not afraid to cross the line. Now the love has been returned, with Mexrrissey's south-of-the-border reinventions of Morrissey and The Smiths songs. Latin Grammy nominees Mariachi Flor de Toloache make New York City history as its first and only all­-female mariachi group. While working to preserve centuries-old traditions of mariachi, the group's mélange of the traditional and the modern pushes the boundaries of the genre and brings mariachi music to new audiences
