Now, "My folks’ house", is my studio and the place where I spend most of my time. (A detail: everything takes place in the old and meaningful district of San Telmo). Apparently Lito had his first contact with music when he was very young: on the one hand, the presence of his parents, Rubens Vitale (Donvi) and Esther Soto, was decisive as regards the artistic stimulation. On the other hand, a piano at home attracted his curiosity all the time That instrument was the center of meetings with friends. One of them was revealing: a Spanish musician played classical and pop music on the piano. To his side, surprised, Lito enjoyed every note while in his soul he grew he realized his passion: music. He was three. From then onwards, if somebody asked Lito about his future, he would say: "I want to be musician and Spanish, with a musician’s ring", like that man’s ring whose fingers caressed the keys of the piano. It was Esther and Donvi’s job to get that ring; the rest was left on Lito Vitale’s hands. Learning to play... His great maestro was Donvi. He started teaching his son after taking classes for a short time with a " piano teacher", whose traditional method, rather rigid, was opposite to Lito’s parent’s criteria. That’s why Donvi decide to be in charge of the musical education of his son, with games, records and few scores. Charles Franz, Donvi’s partner in teaching music, was also fundamental in the artistic development of Lito Vitale. His 1996 CD "Solo piano" was dedicated to them During the primary school, Lito performed with his friends. In 1976, He created M.I.A. (Músicos Independientes Asociados or Independently Associated Musicians), together with his sister Liliana Vitale, Alberto Muñoz, Juan del Barrio, Nono Belvis, Daniel Curto and Esther Soto - Rubens Vitale was the organizer and coordinator. Lito Vitale’s next step was his first solo album: "Sobre miedos, creencias y supersticiones", recorded in 1981. Immediately after that he formed a duet. First with Dino Saluzzi; they started playing together with the excuse of a probable live show (which never happened) with Ron Carter. The six months that they rehearsed left, in a way footprints in Vitale, specially as far as folklore music is concerned. Then he played with Manolo Juárez, experience that appeared in the live record, "A dos pianos". Meanwhile, his career as composer and solo performer continued. During the presentation of "Quitapenas" (today compiled in "Un día antes de ayer"), Lito met Jorge Cumbo and Lucho González. With them he had his first experience as a trio; they were the Argentine representatives at the Encuentro de Música Popular y de Producción Independiente", held at Porto Alegre, Brazil. There, Vitale personally met Hermeto Pascoal, who invited him to play with him on stage. The resul: half an hour of improvisation about the tango "Nostalgias". The next trio was "Vitale - Baraj - González". With this line up he gave countless concerts all over the country. Three of them were unforgettable. The first one was on January 1 1986 celebrating New year’s Eve. It was 5 A.M. in Parque Centenario and more than 20 thousand people were there to listen to the alternative folklore trio. The second, a few weeks later, at the Festival de Cosquín (Córdoba) for which they were awarded the "Premio Consagración". Finally in December of the same year was the last performance of that trio. It was Luna Park, it was unique, not only because it was an instrumental group who played in that stadium, but because it was done independently. In 1987 Lito Vitale formed a quartet. The experience lasted six years, each and every year meant a new production. It is a must to point out "Ese amigo del alma", which sold more than 200 mil copies, and "Viento Sur", symphonic poem with the participation of María Elena Walsh. With the quartet he toured many countries: Spain (where he participated in "Expo Sevilla 1992"), France and Argentina’s neighboring countries. Then, Lito formed a quintet, "Lito Vitale y Los Argentinos", he recorded a CD and gave many concerts in Spain and Germany. Without neglecting his career as soloist, as producer and as productions engineer of other artists, Vitale formed in 1997, a trio with Lucho González and Rubén "Mono" Izarrualde. They recorded "Cuando el río suena", a CD that was presented at the Teatro "Presidente Alvear", in Capital Federal. In July 1998 the trio was invited to the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), and the following month they toured Japan. At the end of the same year, Lito presented, together with a sextet, "Desde casa" at the Teatro Coliseo of Buenos Aires. In 1999 Vitale directed project of the Subsecretaría de Educación del Gobierno de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires: EL GRITO SAGRADO, a production with hymns and patriotic songs. Thye artists that played with him were Juan Carlos Baglietto, Jairo, Alejandro Lerner, María Elena Walsh, Sandra Mihanovich, Víctor Heredia, Fabiana Cantilo and Pedro Aznar. They all participated on May 25 in an unforgettable show in front of the Cabildo of Buenos Aires. At the same time, Lito and Juan Carlos Baglietto gave more than 60 concerts in the interior of the country, and then recorded POSTALES DEL ALMA, the second part of "Postales de este lado del mundo", recorded in1991. This material was presented on November 20 in a packed Luna Park, full of people who admired the duet. For the project MILENIUM DAY 2000, Lito Vitale composed and played, representing Argentina, two songs that were broadcast on December31 on Channel 13 of Buenos Aires and on more than 50 channels worldwide. From the indescribable landscape of Perito Moreno Glacier, Vitale and his quintet, together with Estudio Coral Buenos Aires directed by Carlos López Puccio performed "Día del Milenium". Besides, "Buenos Aires 2000" was track where Julio Bocca and Eleonora Cassano danced in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. Information:
