Q&A With Singer and the Director of Oscar-Nominated ‘Searching for Sugar Man’

Rodriguez, the singer whose story is at the heart of Malik Bendjelloul’s Oscar-nominated “Searching for Sugar Man,” has festival dates lined up at Coachella, Glastonbury and Primavera in Spain that will follow tours of South Africa and Australia.

The new dates are part of astonishing rediscovery of Rodriguez, now 70, who made two albums for Clarence Avant’s Sussex label in the early 1970s that were flops everywhere except in South Africa where his legend grew along with his record sales. Bendjelloul’s film, which Sony is releasing on DVD Jan. 22, chronicles the myths and realities of Rodriguez’s story and his 1998 concerts in South Africa.
