LA PURA REALIDAD is a major band of the current Mexican progressive scene, and holds a special significance as a key intersection for multiple traits and references such as: - a local Mexican progressive tradition, whose ideas, musical themes and sounds are being incorporated and matured into a fully developed new and at the same time old product, establishing bridges of continuity for something which therefore might be called a school - a similar relation to a broader Latin American tradition of progressive rock with heavy and aggressive sounds, eclectic tastes and influences, and common foundations set in King Crimson interpretation, a regional school which spans through Argentina, Chile and Mexico, from the 70s and founding fathers BUBU (Arg) to current day CABEZAS DE CERA (Mex) or MAR DE ROBLES (Chi) - the Latin American traditional music and culture, whose integration into the LA PURA REALIDAD’s music is both a return to cultural roots and also a continuation of the classic 70s “andean” prog from Chile and Peru LA PURA REALIDAD is led by the experienced musician Manuel Lhoman (ex-DELIRIUM, ex-HIGH FIDELITY) on bass; other members are the excellent musicians guitarist Mauricio Terrón, Adolfo Zaragoza on guitar and jarana, drummer Jorge Alanis and violinist Hanna Hipakka. The music is enriched with collaborations from other prominent musicians, notably violinist Alfredo Flores (ex-DELIRIUM, ex-QUESO SAGRADO, ex-HIGH FIDELITY ORCHESTRA). Establishing itself was not easy for the band, hence the band name and concept: “The Truthful Reality”. Their materials were self produced, and the debut, selft-titled album from 2007, was released through the band’s efforts. The music consists of mostly instrumental songs, defined by successive lead parts from violin and electric guitar, which are to be found in constant dialogue, one keeping a groovy rhythm while the other draws the lead in a spacey but aggressive manner; the saxophone sometimes takes the place of the violin.

The excellent rhythm section consists of competent bass playing, the superb drumming in “waves”, and background folk musical patterns played on traditional instruments. The musical narration is a rigorous succession of exposition-aggression-relief-exultation-coda, with a typical Latin-American feel of intensity and joy, discernable through the many influences ranging from King Crimson constructions, jazzy interludes and folk tunes. LA PURA REALIDAD is recommended to fans of intense combinations of electric and traditional ways in rock, and must be acknowledged by ProgArchives for their outstanding efforts in creating and leading what they call “the real Mexican progressive rock”.
