Watch Joel Ross’ artful music video for “Yana”

From the vibraphonist’s recent album, ‘KingMaker.’

Joel Ross released his debut album, KingMaker, on Blue Note earlier this month. He’s since followed up with a video for the single “Yana.”

Directed by Daveion Thompson, the video follows Ross and a female companion (played by Xulani Akel) in a series of abstract scenes in a house and field. Together, they exchange meaningful glances, fidget and dance. At one point, Ross seizes his vibraphone mallets to play an invisible instrument. It’s not a straightforward clip, but it is one that fans of Solange’s recent work will appreciate.
