Otra Realidad

by Luminara

Not many experimental rock bands make an album that flows smoothly and coherently from the first song to the last but this musical production "Otra Realidad" (Another Reality) not only accomplishes that goal but it also includes a diversity of songs and blend of styles that transcends normal Spanish rock. The array of songs (some even mystical such as the haunting wordless "Gypsy" and the otherworldly "Tus Angeles") makes this album an enigmatic musical experience even to the most sophisticated ears and demanding rock fans who enjoy the creativity of bands incorporating new sounds and elements to their music! From the delicate sounds of "La Soledad" and "Vida" to the flamenco guitars in "La Gitanesca" to the grunge sound of the bonus track "Eres" this album takes you through a musical journey you'll want to experience more than once!”

Album Notes

"An alternate reality between Shadows, Angels, Gypsies and an unwavering road towards a new life. An experimental 'rock en español' concept in a contemporary tribal expression full of sublime melodies."

Luminara was born in the Fall of 2010; keeping the essence of the old but with a new focus and a revised concept in which acoustic sounds mix into a rock soundscape and meaningful lyrics taken on a mystical air.

When Iluminata decided it was time for an artistic hiatus, they got a hit on their ReverbNation account from a Chicago based producer interested in their musical concept. He showed a special interest in their unique, varied blend of musical elements fused into the 'rock en español' genre and expressed the wish to produce their first professional album under the independent label Thirdfire Records.

How to explain to this new player that what had been was no more? This new development brought together old friends and colleagues, and led the band to a crossroads. In the end, a new lineup decided the risk was worth taking a chance on this producer and bringing him into their confidence as to the state of the band.

After months of meetings and dialogue, Thirdfire Records comes up with a whole new offer. The label chose Dvy de Iluminata, Luis 'Lucho' Rivera and Kajhlo Álvarez to front the new project and lead the new concept because of their background and achievements, many of which made them pioneers in the local scene, such as:
† John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Honorable mention: Best Latin Rock Song: (Song: Al Final).
† 1rst place in the Coors Light Indie Rock Fest, Puerto Rico (Best Indie Band of the Year).
† Original Theme Song for the soap opera: 'Mis Años en la High' (David Esperón Productions) (Song: Otra Historia.)
† Made the Top 50 International Indie Bands in the New York City based Digital Café Tour of 2008.
† 1rst rock band to receive a formal Proclamation from Edgardo Arlequín Vélez, mayor of the city of Guayanilla, Puerto Rico for cultural achievements at home and abroad.
† 1rst rock band to perform at the historic Teatro Yagüez with the Ballet Escenario Dance Company.
† 1rst Puertorrican ensemble selected to be featured on the Chill Out Acoustic Compilation (Vol. 27; Song: 144,000 (Angels))
† 1rst and only Spanish speaking ensemble featured in Making Music History, a campaign sponsored by BBC International for children in need. (Song: Necesitas amor).

'Otra Realidad' (Another reality) is the name of this, their first album, recorded in Chicago at the professional studios of Thirdfire Records and Fox River Recording Studio; produced and directed by Joan Vélez and Charlie Gaspadarek; mastered by 8 time Grammy nominee and winner of the prestigious Juno (2008) and Dove (2009) awards Brad Blackwood of Euphonic Masters.
