He performed for various societies in Bombay and Delhi, and led orchestras of films in Bombay.

Martins incorporated several motifs from traditional Goan Song into his classical musical compositions.

He received his musical training in Goa, and Bombay, and in the USA at the prestigious Julliard School of Music and Columbia University.
