Art Fazil will give a fresh interpretation of the socially conscious songs from his 20-year-old debut album

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.
