What is a Montuno?

In Cuban music, the montuno is the last section of a song, and it is usually faster, bolder, and semi-improvised.

 

In Spanish, “montuno” means, “comes from the mountain” and it refers to a style of music that originated in Santiago de Cuba, which is where Jorge Peña grew up on a coffee plantation.
