Searching for Sugar Man | KING5.com Seattle

A fascinating new documentary chronicles the search for a mysterious folk musician who unknowingly became a rock legend half a world away.

Searching for Sugar Man tells the story of an American singer-songwriter in the early-70s named Rodriguez, who was considered a talented recording artist but somehow disappeared into oblivion.

At the same time, a bootleg copy of his album found its way to South Africa and became the voice of White Resistance in the apartheid-era country, and Rodriguez became a cult legend for years.

Searching for Sugar Man opens in Seattle on August 10th. This is a story you do not want to miss!

Playlist Creator | Web Marketer The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.
