J Balvin has kicked off the “Energía” tour presented by Buchanan’s Whisky, which will power through 15 cities across the United States between September 14 and October 13. J Balvin’s “Mi Gente” track is one of the most-streamed songs of the summer according to Spotify, and now, as Balvin comes to a city near you, fans will have the chance to dance the night away to this, and a bevy of Balvin’s other high-energy hits live.

To kick off your concert-day festivities, mix up the Energía cocktail inspired by J Balvin - at home. An ode to the Colombian artist’s electrifying music, Energía combines Buchanan’s DeLuxe – the brand’s iconic blend – with fresh tangerine and lemon juices.

Additionally, during the tour (which kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month) Buchanan’s and J Balvin will be spotlighting Los Imparables (The Unstoppables) - the new generation of Latinos who are positively influencing and shaping mainstream culture - in cities around the country to bring these catalysts of Latino culture into the spotlight and celebrate their greatness.

Those over 21 years old will also get the opportunity to be featured on Balvin’s Facebook page by joining Los Imparables movement. This is a call to all the creators, artists, musicians and fashionistas, those with a thirst to move forward, is your time to shine!

To participate share your work on Instagram for a chance to be spotlighted, don't forget to include the hashtags #Imparables and #EsNuestroMomento, and tag @BuchanansWhisky when posting your photo to be feature. Balvin will choose and highlight the winners on his social media channels throughout his tour- check his FB page for updates!
