Sounds like a mix of Phrygian and Harmonic Minor scales to me.
This is pretty accurate. Start off in a minor key and make use of the natural 7 and the b2. In fact, you don't even have to use both. You could pick just one of those scales and you can still get that feel.

Extra-short answer: Minor scale alterations.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.
