Now, also imagine that unbeknownst to you, you’ve developed a cult following in South Africa and other nearby countries; your musical genius considered to rival that of Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones.

Sixto Rodriguez’s music is a blend of rock, folk, and psychedelic, with an emphasis on societal realities and their short-comings. This is the enigmatic story of Sixto Rodriguez, and this is his music.
