Boonfaysau (HK)

“Boonfaysau” (BFS) is an award-winning, full-fledged a cappella team from Hong Kong. The name “Boonfaysau” in Cantonese is derived from a choice of cut for barbecued pork, “half fat and half lean”. The group was founded on the members’ shared passion for singing, a repertoire built after countless trials, and vocal cords that brave the frontiers of various musical genres.

Since Boonfaysau’s inception in 2017, they have received acclaim and continuous recognition from the wider a cappella circle, both in Hong Kong and abroad. Most recently, they claimed not only the overall First Prize but also the VoiceJam Award and a Special Award for Best Rhythm Section at the Vocal Asia Asian Cup A Cappella Competition 2018, held in Hsinchu, Taiwan. In 2019, going beyond Asia, the group began touring and performing internationally. In 2019 February, Boonfaysau was invited by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in San Francisco to perform in 5 cities across the United States. In April, the group was invited by VoiceJam Festival in the United States as performing guests. Later in May, the group was also invited to perform in the 2019 Taoyuan Vocal Festival, bringing their Hong Kong sound to every place and every audience they met.

Boonfaysau is also active in local a cappella circle and strives to bring local audience refreshing live performance. In 2019 August, the group performed at 1563 At the East as the first chapter of a cappella performance series. In December, the group was interviewed by RTHK “New Cultural Campaign” to share their thoughts on a cappella. In 2020 January, Boonfaysau performed in their first sold-out concert “Take A Bow: A Cappella”, presented by Cultural Presentation Section of Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Service Department as part of the “Music Delight” series, bringing exciting rendition of classics, pop and the group’s original.

“Yet to us, nothing would delight us more than having you enjoy our performances just as how people enjoy the half-lean, half-fat barbecued pork of boonfaysau cha-siu. Please sit back, and we hope you’ll enjoy our singing!” the group says.
