Bifunkal is a Chicago-based band that believes in live looping, vocal bass, and the power of improvisation and exploration.
  "The criminally underrated duo of Jesse Cryderman and Hershyl Edwards have been dropping funk bombs around Chicago for almost a decade." -
  Jesse Cryderman (guitar, loops, keys, vox) and Hershyl Edwards (drums, vocal bass, loops, vox) write, orchestrate, and perform the Bifunkal catalog, and in a live setting, all loops and samples are generated in real time. Another defining factor: drummer Hershyl Edwards sings the bass lines in real time as well. The band has shared and headlined numerous club and festival bills with acts like Elephant Wrecking Ball, Woody Goss (Vulfpeck), Sir the Baptist, Knower, Paris Monster, and has held numerous residencies in Chicago.
  Although a two-person composition and performance team at its core, Bifunkal frequently performs with additional members, including horns, MCs, beatboxers, vocal choirs, and even a full orchestra. (You can check this out on their release, Tetra.) Bifunkal has collaborated with Honeycomb, Charlie Otto (This Must be the Band, DJ no DJ), Roy McGrath (Mejunje), Cason Trager (R34L, The Coop), Marcus Rezak, My Boy Elroy (Liquid Soul), Honey La'Rochelle, and many more.
