Martin will tape the music show in Miami in August for a November bow on MTV Latin America, MTV Tres and MTV Puerto Rico.

This is MTV Latin America’s 19th show in the “Unplugged” franchise and the first for MTV Tres, the channel formerly known as MTV Es (for Espanol), which is being relaunched with a bilingual/bicultural focus.
