Cerro Negro performs at Noontime Concert Series

Cerro Negro, Friday, October 7

The Henry Madden Library at Fresno State continues the sixth season of its Noontime Concert Series with a performance by Cerro Negro.

Cerro Negro is a flamenco global fusion group from Fresno that created its style by coupling traditional elements of flamenco guitar with Caribbean percussion and passionate vocals. Band members include Frank Giordano, John Martin III and Corey Whitehead.

Noontime Concert

  • 12:10 p.m. on Friday, October 7, 2016
  • Table Mountain Rancheria Reading Room in the Henry Madden Library (3rd floor, North Wing)

The group, Cerro Negro, has played concerts across the country over the past 18 years, sharing the stage with artists such as Eddie Palmieri, Arturo Sandoval and Poncho Sanchez. The group has self-recorded six albums and tours and performs school presentations and corporate events. In a world becoming ever more electrified and amplified, Cerro Negro reaches back to an acoustic era, rediscovering music of the past from all parts of the globe.
