In the latest in our series on people's daily lives, Yacoub Ouedraogo - better known as Jimi - tells of his career as a guitarist in Mali's world-famous music industry.
I am a guitarist, songwriter, composer, singer and arranger. Music is my life. When I first came to Mali from Burkina Faso, the first song I played was Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix.
Ever since, people have called me "Jimi". But I don't really like that name. My real name means Jacob Stallion in the Mossi language.
