Leo Ganza - "Pandemic"
Review by Patrick Joseph
“Pandemic” is a hip-hop testament to the trials and tribulations experienced globally during the past year. A finely crafted backing track establishes an emotionally rich tone underneath Ganza’s flow. The groove on this song will take you to another place, pairing perfectly with the insightful lyrics. Tackling a somber subject matter with an uplifting feeling, Ganza’s flow is as engaging and dynamic as the musical accompaniment.
Lyrically, “Pandemic,” tells the story of the multitudes by illuminating a single perspective.
“We gotta make it work bottom line, Remember all the pain remember all the struggle, We became stronger living in a bubble.”
Listeners will find strength and resilience in these highly relatable lyrics.
“Remember all the outside riots, We were inside staying quiet, We went to work we some go-getters, But we can’t forget all the protestors.”
This lyrical device is highly effective in humanizing large-scale historical events…fantastic writing.
The arrangement of “Pandemic” demonstrates brilliance in beat production. The interaction between piano harmonies, string melodies, and backup vocals is expertly done. An intensely rich percussion track and a virtuosic bass line create unstoppable energy that propels the music forward. A delay effect on Ganza’s vocals creates yet another dimension to the song, adding gravity to each lyric. Overall, “Pandemic” is an excellent piece of music.
