Following an extended teaching journey in Europe, Richard Martin aka medicineman, staked his tent in the studio of CIUT radio in the heart of downtown Toronto. For the past 14 years, he's hosted NO MAN'S LAND and has earned a reputation among a loyal audience for unique, groove-driven explorations into the evolution of world music & global electronica.
Indo-Arabic Dub to Afro-Latin Funk to Gypsy-Swing Electronica, his sets flow seamlessly from soothing ancient rhythms and textures through rippling primitive & progressive beats, always challenging cultural boundaries & musical traditions. This genre-bending mixology has generated a throng of listeners locally and internationally + continues to win fans over the airwaves and on dancefloors. NO MAN'S LAND is considered by many to be the top world fusion radio show in Canada.
From underground parties to mainstream stages, he has produced shows and played DJ sets with dozens of major international artists. He has spoken at many conferences & festivals discussing world music, cultural activism and social citizenship, and has also toured across North America as a yoga DJ.
Working closely with a number of clubs and promoters on local and international concerts & parties and through consistent work as an educator, radio producer and cultural ambassador, medman is instrumental in pushing global music forward, and in exposing the international airwaves to the best emerging & established artists in the scene. That was a serious run-on sentence folks. Nevertheless, the recipe is to diligently seek out the finest independent grooves, hook into the leading music labels and spread a weekly healing dose to the masses. Music is indeed our medicine.
