    Juanes joins Masterpeace

    “It’s time to change hate for love, I was always interested not so much in the industry side of things, but in being able to put people together and create music.” Juanes


    We are so happy to share this news with all our MasterPeacers, the mega-superstar and first class humanitarian singer Juanes is now on board, our most heart-warming initiative is already big and all of that made possible with your efforts, love and support.

    Juanes’s took his music into the next level, with his great guitar sounds, dancing rhythms, he creates peace and open doors for powerful effective message, he makes music to unite the world, motivate people and aspire for a better world for everyone.

    Juanes in lines.



    Juanes continues his social work through the ‘Fundacion Mi Sangre’ in Colombia and the Peace without Borders concerts initiative worldwide.

    In late 2009 the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Fescol Foundation declared:

    “JUANES is the artist standing as the most committed to solving the problems created by the armed conflict in Colombia, but also those arising from the lack of understanding among governments and peoples” and in so doing gave him the National Peace Prize in the honorary category, in recognition of his work on behalf of victims of the Colombian armed conflict and for the understanding of peoples.

    ‘Fundacion Mi Sangre’

    It is a non-for-profit organization that was founded in 2006 by the initiative of singer and songwriter Juanes, who has always expressed great concern about the ravages of Colombia’s internal armed conflict and the suffering of the survivors and victims. Fundacion Mi Sangre stands out for social investment projects that have a component of visibility of the issue of children affected by landmines and unexploded ordnances and the conflict in Colombia. This bet is aimed to influence the public agenda on the national and international arenas to help youth become major players in the construction of peace in Colombia.

    Juanes is a song writer, singer, musician and a social leader, has revealed since his beginnings as an artist a great spirit of philanthropy and sensitivity to social and humanitarian causes in the world and particularly in his country Colombia.



    Juanes has become one of the flagship figures in the fight against antipersonnel mines. Accordingly, in 2006, he decided to create the Mi Sangre (My Blood) Foundation, a non for profit organization aimed at helping children in Colombia and plays a leading role in peace building efforts.

    Juan Esteban Aristizábal Vásquez (the original name) born on August 9, 1972, and he grew up in Medellín (second largest city famous for drug trafficking and holding the highest rate of homicide) Colombia.

    As a teenager, Juanes and his guitar playing drifted toward heavy metal, influenced greatly by Metallica and other bands of that ilk. This led to his founding of the metal band “Ekhymosis”, which went on to considerable success, releasing seven albums in ten years (1988-1998) and enjoying a sizable following in Colombia.

    He eventually chose to depart the band and pursue a solo career moving to Los Angeles. In 2000 Juanes and Gustavo Santaolalla (Argentinean producer) began work on what would become Fijate Bien (his first solo album and it was for mine victims, one of his main causes).



    In 2002 he had his lead single, “A Dios le Pido,” that became some sort of a national anthem in much of Latin America, a sort of prayer for peace throughout that often troubled part of the world.

    Also in 2004 “La Camisa Negra,” became the number one hit across Western Europe and Americas. Though his chart-topping was confined to the Latin market in the United States, Juanes was recognized for his global outreach, as Time magazine counted him among its list of “the 100 most influential people in the world today.”
