The episode will include interviews with other artists and producers to "explore the meaning of the Juanes effect, and how his passion for music touches everyone around him."

The Juanes Effect will be followed by an in-studio concert where the Grammy and Latin Grammy-winning artist will perform new tracks from the album. 

"We are delighted and immensely proud to have Juanes as part of a growing list of top artists featured in our latest HBO Latino Concert event," HBO's SVP of Multicultural & International Marketing Lucinda Martinez said in a statement.
