Strident in voice and attitude, Shayan enthralled the Prothom Alo scribes this Thursday, at the paper's regular music@desk event.

Farzana Wahid Shayan is known for her songs with a strong social message, a protest against injustice and the anomalies in society. This multi-talented artiste writes her own songs, composes the music and sings.

"I am happy to be singing here at Prothom Alo with so many enlightened minds around," she said, in a brief introduction before she belted out one strong message after the other in music.

Her repertoire for the afternoon included her popular 'Ami mussalmaner meye', 'Du chokh diyei dekho,' 'Janatar beyadobi,' 'Etai amar rajniti, ami eka eka hati,', 'O neta bhai,' 'Abrar Fahad,' and 'Hothat korei chokh porechhe.'

The audience gave her a warm ovation.
