Francisco Gonzalez was born in Colombia. He received his first musical education from his father Francisco Gonzalez before moving to Mexico where he worked on several ethnomusicology projects. He was admitted into the National School of Music of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, where he studied composition with Juan A. Rosado and Rodolfo Halffter, while at the same time committing to the study of classical guitar after being introduced to Abel Carlevaro.

In 1982, Francisco moved to France where he studied composition with Katori Makino and classical guitar with Francis Verba at the Paul Dukas Conservatory of Paris. He has since performed as a guitarist worldwide.

Francisco Gonzalez has published numerous articles in specialist magazines and has given speeches at conferences about guitar and Latin American music. He has made several recordings (Recoveco Group, Roberto Alagna, Arielle Dombasle, Lila Downs, Jorge Lopez, etc.). His compositions are published by the Henry Lemoine and Robert Martin editions.
