With their earthy vocal harmonies set to infectious rhythms, Los Terricolas (translated: Earth Dwellers) is one of Venezuela's top dance bands. While the band's foundation rests on the Hoyer brothers -- Johnny, David and Lenny -- Los Terricolas is strengthened by the dynamic lead singing of Nestor Daniel.
Formed in the small Venezuelan town of Moron, in the state of Carabobo, Los Terricolas have increasingly expanded their following. "Discovered" by Caesar Roldan, president of the Discomoda Record label, the group followed the release of their debut single, "You Will Live," with a tour of Ecuador in 1974. The following year, Los Terricolas toured Mexico where their single, "I Swear That I Today Love," was a minor hit. The band broke through to an international audience with their single, "Mourning In The Core," which became a hit Latin dance tune. The group subsequently toured the United States, Mexico, Central, and South America.
