Rodriguez — aka Sixto Diaz Rodriguez (born July 10, 1942) — is an American singer/songwriter from Detroit, Mich., who released a single on Impact Records in 1967, followed by two albums on Sussex Records in 1970/71. After losing touch with the industry, his work gained a mass following in South Africa, where his popularity remained unknown to the outside world until the late 1990s when his daughter discovered the phenomenon via the Internet.
