Born in 1942 of mixed racial heritage, Gentil Montana has deep roots in the musical culture of Colombia, spending much of his early adult life playing popular music in various groups. Due to the lack of guitar method books and sheet music in Colombia at the time, he was not exposed to the music of Sor, Aguado, Giuliani or Bach until he was in his early twenties, often through recordings which he then transcribed himself. All the while, Montana was active as a composer and during the Alirio Diaz International Competition in Caracas in 1975, none other than Antonio Lauro called him aside and said, 'Montana, you must concentrate on your composition; it is a gift from God.' Fortunately for the guitar world, he did just that.
