In 1982, Tito Losavio (who has been previously perfor- ming as a freelance musician at ‘El Papagayo’, brazilean night club, located near the BsAs ‘Recoleta’ neighbor- hood in intersection of Cordoba Ave./Anchorena St.), formed ‘Biorsi’, a band with tropical influences.
Although ‘Biorsi’ went through different formations, the one in 1983 is remembered as the finest of them all: Tito Losavio (guitar, vocals), Adrian Lobato (bass, vocals) - son of choreographer Eber Lobato and formerly a member of Ruben Elena’s argie ‘Hair’ musical - , Guillermo Medin (Quistral, Final, Berklee College of Music 1983 Composition Award, Klhasch) (keyboards), Juan Manuel Basavilbaso (percussion) and Pablo Mendez (drums).
‘Biorsi’ rehearsal space was precisely at 2452 Paraguay St. (also near the BsAs ‘Recoleta’ neighborhood) and in the same block and right opposite to artist Omar Emir Yaban’s Einstein Cafe, which at that time was the chosen place for underground performing arts. Other artists such as Luca Prodan (Luca Prodan) and ‘Geniol’ rehearsed there. Although ‘Biorsi’ did some live performances and played in the Spring’83 Monte Hermoso Festival, Bahia Blanca province, they never released their material.
Simultaneously, ‘Biorsi’ musicians Tito Losavio, Adrian Lobato and Guillermo Medin were as well playing as the support band of female singer ‘Pinin Folgado’. Probably is during this period when Tito Losavio started developing his compositional trend of writing tailored songs for soloist female singers.
Early 1984, keyboardist Guillermo Medin was hired by mime ‘Olucaro Ocimotana’ as musical director of Theatre of The Invisible in Brazil and since there weren't signs that ‘Biorzi’ would ever reach the pre-production stage, departed to Rio de Janeiro.
Some believe Tito Losavio/Hilda Lizarazu (Hilda Lizarazu) earliest musical affair started in 1985, in the midst of ‘Biorsi’ disbandment. Others instead say ‘Comida China’ (Comida China) was the real springboard for Hilda Lizarazu’s singer career, referring to the fact that she joined this band by the hand of her boyfriend singer Miguel Zavaleta (Suéter).
Although is uncertain how did exactly this cute couple first met, by 1986 Hilda Lizarazu’s new boyfriend, Tito Losavio, became ManRay’s leader and composer at 2170 Humbolt St., the so called ‘Palermo Hollywood’ neighborhood by Real Estate developers.
Undoubtly ManRay’s first album has the compositional finger print of Tito Losavio’s ductility for the Pop/Rock genre: songs are catchy, unsophisticated and straight forward, resulting in an overall well-shaped album, rounded off with a latin flavour inherited from his past musical experiences.
While mixing in Studios ION, between April/May 1988, long time fellow musician keyboardist Guillermo Medin was invited to participate in future ManRay`s projects. Worked together at their Humbolt St. place (aka ‘the bottling district’ because beverage companies bottled wine in the surroundings), till Guillermo Medin returned to Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he migrated in late 1979.
