Joshua Crumbly has shared an accompanying music video for “Afria,” a cut taken from his debut studio album Rise.

Directed and edited by Alan Be and filmed by Drew Robinson, the visual sees the bassist, composer and bandleader spending his day a serene day surrounded by nature. Crumbly can be seen playing a number of instruments throughout the two-minute track, but the Mbira is the piece that really stands out. “I was on tour in Japan a few years ago and went to a couple music stores in the city of Kyoto, and found an Mbira in one of them, which is an African instrument — “Afria” is sort of built on the ostinato I played on the Mbira,” he told Ones to Watch via a statement. “When it came time to naming the song, I thought about how ironic it was finding an African instrument in Asia and it clicked to name it “Afria,” which is also a homage to my mixed heritage of African-American and Indian.”
