The Mono Núñez Festival originated in 1975, when a group of people from the town of Ginebra, Valle, decided to make a contest of Andean music. Given the success of the first contest and good reception from the audience, managers and some inhabitants of Ginebra decided to create in 1976 a foundation with the aim of managing the contest.
