Where does the interest come from?

The video that the singer published on her social networks is not strange, since she has a relationship with alex hoyer, who, although he is American, is of Venezuelan origin.

He is the son of Néstor Daniel Hoyer, one of the members of the Venezuelan group Los Terrícolas, which was created at the end of the 60s and gained national and international fame.

This closeness with Venezuelans means that he coexists closely with the customs and traditions, which are increasingly spread throughout the world.
