Talented Argentinean musician Lito Vitale was born in Buenos Aires, son of Esther Soto and Rubens Vitale. At a very young age, influenced by his parents and inspired by a piano, Lito started getting involved in music. In 1976 he formed M.I.A., which stood for Músicos Independientes Asociados (Independent Musicians Associated). After a show, Argentinean singer/songwriter Luis Alberto Spinetta invited him to join his band, Spinetta Jade. In 1981 Lito Vitale released his first solo record, Sobre Miedos, Creencias y Supersticiones, soon after teaming up with Dino Salvazi and Manolo Juárez. Next, he formed a three-piece act with Bernardo Baraj and Lucho González, issuing El Trio in 1985 and Vitale-Baraj-González in 1986. After participating in the Expo Sevilla 1992, the musician created a new project called Lito Vitale y Los Argentinos. Around that time, Lito Vitale hosted a late night TV show oriented to music lovers, and in 1995 got his own alternative radio show called La Otra Música. Two years later, he, along with Lucho González and Rubén Izarrualde, recorded Cuando El Rio Suena, performing live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1998. A year later, Postales del Alma was released.
