We were extremely pleased to be able to interview Yossi Sassi, a founding member and guitarist from Orphaned Land, who is now heading his own solo work under the name Yossi Sassi Band.
Arthur, Xerxes, and Yossi discuss Yossi’s unique blend of influences (spiritual, musical, cultural), his decision to leave Orphaned Land and pursue a solo music and production career, and his upbringing.
Yossi even demos the instrument he invented, the bouzoukitara, live on the podcast.
