Yossi Sassi is a guitar player from Israël and when I listened to his album Melting Clocks I found he was able to create a very exciting mix of high powered instrumental guitar with oriental music. We did the interview backstage in Paris when he was touring Europe with Marty Friedman and Stéphan Forte.
We talked during the interview about his influence, about how he mixes instrumental guitar music with oriental music, about his hybrid bouzouki/guitar instrument and many other subjects.
Extracts from Melting Clocks played before the interview:
- The Calling Rush Hour
- Sahara Afternoon
- Melting Clocks
