Alex Bendaña's parents fled the Nicaraguan revolution and moved to Venezuela. After a couple of years, his family moved to Los Angeles, some 3,000 miles away from Nicaragua. Alex was two years old when they arrived. At school, he learned English and American history. At home, he heard stories about Nicaragua, a place he's never visited to this day. And growing up in L.A. connected him with different cultures that influenced his music.
