Latin American Herald Tribune – Hispanic Musician Lived in Obscurity without Knowing He Was Star Abroad

CHICAGO – The documentary “Searching for Sugar Man” tells the story of a Mexican-American musician who in the 1970s recorded two albums that did not have much success in the United States, but which made their way to South Africa, where the songs inspired whites opposed to apartheid.

The documentary by Swedish director Malik Bendjelloul is currently showing in several cities around the country after being screened in January at the Sundance Festival.

The film tells the story of Sixto Rodriguez, the son of Mexican parents who had emigrated to Detroit to work in the auto industry.
