Here's the short story: being compared to Al Green, he recorded three soul singles in the early 1970s, disappeared for 25 years until BBC Radio 1 host Gilles Peterson brought Darondo, also known as Double D or Dynamite D, out of hiding in 2005 on his "Gilles Peterson Digs America" compilation. That's also the long story.

Most of those 25 years remain a mystery. He visits our stage at SXSW with Nino Moschella, a 29-year-old soulful, multi-instrumentalist.

Songs performed: "Bedroom," "How I Got Over," and " Legs, Pt. 1."
