Many of you may well be familiar with Yossi Sassi pioneer of Oriental Rock but I was not and that is great thing about this virtual world it allows us to discover amazing established artists form around the World for the 1st time. Yossi was the co-founder of the well known progressive rock band Orphaned Land for many years before creating the Yossi Sassi Band more insights here on my finding about the man and his music.
I will be posting more updates on Yossi soon but lets start with his latest album Roots and Roads which you can preorder in advance of the late May release as well as his prior work and some very cool t-shirts with great imagery .So do check out the shop.
Yossi is all about Uniting the World Through Music which makes him a kindred spirit even though I never met him I feel I know him though his Ted Talk.
I will keep this short and be back soon with more about Yossi but in mean time watch and listen to the upcoming promos from Roots and Roads Album. You can also follow his band on Facebook.
April 2011 is when I 1st heard Umair Jaswal with his then band Qayaas I was learning about the Rock Scene in other countries something I love to do and still do to this day, I stumbled upon the following videos and knew immediately I had found something special in both Umair and the talented Musicians in Qayaas.
During the past 5 years Umair has been nominated and awarded numerous awards including Best Rock Vocalist in South Asia for the full details on his accomplishments please visit his main site. Let me just say he has made me a very proud Promoter while winning the hearts of fans of his loyal fans who will soon reach at the 3/4 million world wide on Facebook. His latest return to Coke Studio has over 5 Million views and counting !
Umair is constantly challenging himself he will now take his career to another level by acting in the lead role in Mor Mahal this Sunday April 24th the 1st episode airs.
