The Pancakes

The Pancakes is a Hong Kong based, award winning one-girl band consisting of independent singer-songwriter Dejay Choi. The music of the Pancakes is characterised by Dejay's very innocent, almost child-like voice with bright and catchy melodies. Most of The Pancakes' songs are written in English language, as opposed to majority of singers in Hong Kong, who perform mainly in Cantonese.
