Keyboardist Kamaal Williams—aka Henry Wu—has released a captivating music video for “New Heights (Visions of Aisha Malik).”
It opens with a brief lecture at the mahjong table, courtesy of a man dressed all in red save his shades and chain. “The game of mahjong teaches us much about life,” he tells Wu. “We cannot choose our tiles, but we can choose how we play them.”
What follows is a spellbinding series of kinetic scenes, from Wu’s nimble fingers traversing piano keys to an intense sparring session between two martial arts practitioners.
“New Heights” arrived last December alongside its B-side, “Snitches Brew.” Watch the new video below:
