1989, 3 min, color, sound

Shot in Burkina Faso, Wassa is a transcultural music video that unfolds with lush imagery and the evocative music of Houstapha Thiohbiano. Jones creates a dreamlike vision, capturing the vibrancy and sensuality of the everyday. This rhythmically textured work is part of his exploration of African diaspora culture through nonverbal storytelling and a transcultural language of sound and image construction — the development of codes based on what Jones terms "emotional progressions and an African sensorium."

Music: Houstapha Thiohbiano.
