Carlos Santana is planning another collaborative album with a series of Latino stars.

The guitar great has tasted great success with his albums Shaman and Supernatural and now he’s planning another star-studded release full of acts and artists with ties to South America.

“Corazon,” which will be released next year, will feature tracks with Gloria Estefan, Pitbull, Juanes, Lila Downs and Miguel as well as a song Santana has recorded with his son Salvador.

Many of the guests on the album will perform their tunes with Santana at a concert in Guadalajara, Mexico on Dec. 14, which will take place a week after the guitarist joins Billy Joel among this year’s Kennedy Center honorees.

U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will salute the two musicians, among others, at the 36th annual ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 7.
