In February 2014, 18 members of Ziriguidum travelled to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil to take part in the Carnaval Transatlântico project under the musical direction of John Paul Courtney.

Toque Tambor concentrate closely on the style of music played by the Samba Schools and Carnival Blocos of Rio de Janeiro. This music is played on the same instruments as the Samba Schools of Rio but incorporates rhythms from other parts of Brazil and the western world e.g Congo, Ciranda, Marcha and Funk.
