Rodriguez to Perform in Three Latin American Countries in April

Sixto Rodriguez, the Searching for Sugar Man subject, isn’t the only over-60 musician with the last name Rodriguez still going strong.

Silvio Rodriguez, the noted Cuban singer-songwriter, will be touring Costa Rica, Bolivia and Peru in April.

The 66-year-old musician, known as one of the leaders of the nueva trova movement, will give a single concert in each of the three countries.

Rodriguez will be backed by flutist and clarinet player Niurka Gonzalez and drummer Oliver Valdes.

His first performance will be on April 12 at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in San Jose, Costa Rica.

On April 15, Rodriguez has a concert scheduled at City Park in Santa Cruz, Bolivia; and he will close the tour with a show at Monumental Stadium in Lima on April 19.

In his nearly 50-year artistic career, Rodriguez has composed hundreds of songs and music for films, and has released more than 20 albums.

The composer of “Ojala,” “Unicornio” and “Playa Giron” made appearances in other Latin American countries last year, including Uruguay and Chile.
