watch / Searching For Sugarman

for South Africans, Rodgriuez is a hero – a voice so many wanted but couldn’t find.

his Cold Fact LP drifted through houses and parties throughout the 70’s, and once the wheel had turned, those who listened in the 70’s played the music nostalgically in the 90’s as their children grew up, further encouraging the proliferation of Rodriguez fans in the country through their young.

during the mid-90’s, Rodriguez was living a bizarre double life – in Detroit he was a construction worker (no one around him had a clue as to his album releases) while in South Africa he had be tracked down and invited to performed arena concerts to hordes of adoring fans.

Searching For Sugarman is SIxto’s story.
