Following the release of his 2018 album ‘The Rest of Now,’ acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and genre buster Koby Israelite returns to Chant Records with a collaboration featuring the virtuoso Romanian accordionist Roberto de Brasov. Crossing genres, fusing cultures and combining multiple flavors into a truly one of a kind musical punch in the face, ‘Provokation’ is like an almost out-of-control steamroller blasting a mixtape of Balkan music, jazz and metal. Featuring a haunting, funhouse rendition of Chopin’s ‘Nocturne No 2’ and the classic standard ‘If You Go Away’ reworked as a dramatic power ballad with special guest singer Annique, ‘Provokation’ electrifies from first note to last.
