David Anthony Martins: International Singing Star! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Dave Martins

He will tell you that his last name is Martins; people usually leave out the last letter. Martins is a Portuguese name; Dave’s forebears took the boat from Madeira. The stormy seas ended in British Guiana and the Empire has produced a musician that has become an international icon.

Dave Martins and the Trade Winds have etched their names in the folklore of the Caribbean. The Trade Winds is 51 years old and is going strong. Over the years, Dave has given us his wit, vision, and a unique ability to capture the feelings and mood of the people.    

Dave is originally from Hague on the West Coast of Demerara, in Guyana. When he was ten years old the family moved to Vreed-en-hoop. He attended St. Stanislaus High School where he had a liking for languages and a fascination for words and music. Dave played in a small group on the West Coast that focused on ballads and Latin music.
