Sixto Rodriguez, the star of the best documentary Oscar winning Searching For Sugar Man, is coming to Amsterdam. Paradiso were the first ones to smartly jump onto the recent hype around the ’70s folk singer. The documentary depicts how the Detroit singer’s two unsuccessful albums make it big years later in South Africa (where he is wrongly presumed dead) without him knowing anything about it. Loyal fans from South Africa track him down and find a humble, poor man working in construction who left all his musical ambitions behind long ago. Anyone who saw it will be in love with Sixto. I’ll see you at the concert!
