Broodje Brussel: Osman Martins


Born in Bahia (Brasil) at the beginning of the sixties Osman Martins moved to Sao Paolo and became involved with music at a young age. When he turned 10 years old he got a “cavaquinho”(snare instrument of Portuguese origin) as a gift and has never put it down ever since. He got the opportunity to learn from the famous Maestro Robinson Miguel and became inspired by the guitar when he heard Irio de Paula play (ex-guitarist Elze Soares) He decides to fully concentrate himself on mastering his guitar skills on melodic and harmonious level which will give an extra dimension to the cavaquinho, which remains his main instrument. After a while he decides to take on another challenge and Martins begins to train his voice. Having followed several vocal trainings he developed himself into the artist as we currently know him: one of Belgian’s finest Brazilian musicians. He is currently based in Brussels and teaches at our Muziekpublique academy. Besides teaching Osman Martins is a part of several music projects such as Parceria and Samba de Candeia. At his concert at Muziekpublique he will, exceptionally, be playing a solo set.
