    Sup guys and gals,

    I'm trying to do some research on funk sub genres, and was wondering if anyone could lead me to some Latin funk bassists and their projects?

    Hmm - the first thing that comes to mind is Ozomatli (Will Abers is the bassist).

    Oscar Stagnaro of Caribbean Jazz Project is pretty funky, jazzy, tasteful and awesome.

    Depends on what do you mean by "latin". These two guys are latinos, plenty funky:
