The Mono Núñez Festival is the most important event in Colombian Andean music and takes place in the town of Ginebra, (in the department of Valle del Cauca), just an hour away from Cali. It brings together the greatest and most virtuoso composers and interpreters of this genre of folk music.
The festival is the perfect event for the fusion of tradition and modernity and constitutes a display of the musical qualities of young Colombian interpreters and composers.
The event is also the most important contest of this kind of music and a pad for launching artists into the international arena. Several former contestants have been nominated to Grammy Latino awards in the category of traditional music.
