The ‘Festival de Música Andina Colombiana “Mono Nuñez”’ (Colombian Andean Music Festival "Mono Núñez") takes place every year in Ginebra, and is one of the most renowned musical competitions in the country, being considered National Heritage. This is, in fact, the most important Andean music event in the country. The melodies that emanate from the wind and string instruments, as well as the chants, are the reflection of Colombian folklore. These nostalgic chords invade the South American Andes’ charm, an inspiration for artists, groups and soloists from all over the country who meet in one place, every June, since 1975. The festival lasts four days.
In short, this event brings together the main composers and performers of this musical genre, and a large audience that each year eagerly awaits for the festival to delight their senses and feed their souls with good music. In addition to this, visitors can taste the delicious typical food that is offered at the festival, such as: ‘sancho de gallina’ (typical colombian hen and root vegetable stew) and ‘fritanga’ (assortment of deep fried plantain, root vegetables and cuts of meat). This is the perfect occasion to meet and celebrate with friends. Entry to the event is restricted to minors.
