From Ivory Coast: Jimmy Hyacinthe
His passion was the guitar. From his beginnings as a musician and amateur imitator until his confirmation as an instrumentalist talent, N'goran Jimmy Hyacinthe was faithful to this instrument which the Ivorian public and beyond the country, identify. Heir to the pop generation (1960-1970) he was the most outstanding figure in Côte d'Ivoire, he broke decisively with the art of Hendrix in the late 1970s and is now concerned to examine the heritage local musical Kode (subgroup Baoulé). He scored there, his artistic approach in line with a true quest for identity, following Ernesto Djedje.
