Singer-songwriter Art Fazil's signature folk tune Full Moon Over Marina Bay, one of the songs from his self-titled debut album, is more than two decades old.

On Friday, he celebrates the album's 20th anniversary with a gig at, aptly, Marina Bay - at the Esplanade Recital Studio to be exact.

"The songs are still relevant," he says of the socially conscious lyrics that permeate the 12-track album originally released in 1993.

Full Moon Over Marina Bay, for example, was inspired by youth problems and "weird things" that happen every time there is a full moon. It cites, among others, a real-life incident in which a pregnant youth gave birth to a baby in a toilet bowl.
