    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).

    oins and Robbie Ameen have a few projects together going back to the Valentin days, one of my favorite rhythm duos period.

    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:

    But I'd never classify them in the same vein of Lincoln Goines :D
