Who would know that an unknown album from an unknown artist in 1970 (Rodriguez) would become a huge phenomenon in South Africa?
As big as, say, Elvis Presley. Rodriguez himself was never aware of his huge success, as well as most other Americans. His music was lost in the US but, by a strange coincidence becomes a cult hit in South Africa and becomes a symbol of rebellion for the underground white, anti-apartheid sub-culture.
Cold Fact - Rodriguez, presented by Rhumbelow Theatre at Tina’s in Kloof, is a musical tribute to Rodriguez’s music is performed by Barry Thomson and The Reals (Barry Thomson, Dawn Selby, Mali Sewell and Jason Andrew)
