Montreal-based Duo De.Ville Declare Love for ‘Aminata’ in New Single

The North African duo look to the nation of Senegal for inspiration for their latest track.

Montreal-based Maghrébin duo, De.Ville, tell the story of a Moroccan man declaring his love for ‘Aminata’, a Senegalese student at the University of Montreal, in a laid-back track wrapped in warm, acoustic-pop sounds.

Collaborating to compose the song across continents with Czechia-based Moroccan producer and sound engineer, SPNOX, the synth-funk duo of Ziad Qoulaii and Simon Pierre sprinkle playful vocals over an infectiously feel-good instrumental.The pair, who frequently assert their Arab pride in a globalising world, hop between French and Arabic in the new song, championing the bonds unifying Africans and celebrating Senegalese figures from spiritual leader Ahmadou Bamba to football star El Hadji Diouf.
