Carlos Santana will continue his trend of star-studded genre-hopping with the release of ‘Corazon.’ The album, which will be released at an unknown date early next year, serves as a tribute to his Latin heritage.

ABC News Radio reports that the guitar legend has lined up a diverse array of Latino musicians to help him out, including Gloria Estefan and Pitbull (both Cuban-American), Juanes (Colombia) and Lila Downs (Mexico). Santana’s son Salvador and neo-soul singer Miguel also make contributions, as does non-Latino Ziggy Marley. The album is produced by Lester Mendez, known for his work with Shakira and Enrique Iglesias.

‘Corazon’ — which will touch on such genres as rock, hip-hop, salsa, reggae and bachata — will be previewed on Dec. 14 with a concert at the Vincente Fernandez Arena in Guadalajara, Mexico. Many of the artists featured on the album will perform with Santana.

It is not known if ‘Corazon’ will feature the reunion of the original Santana lineup, which was reportedly in the works earlier this year.
