[FOLK PHOENIX] The story of Sixto Rodriguez is one of the stranger tales in pop music history. As chronicled in last year’s Oscar-winning Searching for Sugar Man, Rodriguez, whose limited number of fans dubbed him the Latino Bob Dylan for his socially conscious ballads, had his career fizzle out after his records bombed. He dropped off the scene, but somehow his music went multi-platinum in South Africa, becoming the soundtrack of the antiapartheid movement. Resurrected half a decade later—everyone thought he was dead; he was just in Detroit, which is kinda the same—Rodriguez is finally taking his place in the spotlight. It took a while, but some things are worth the wait.
