The group’s name ‘Touch of Brazil Carnival Group’ refers to their first inspiration and theme in 2001. Since then T.O.B. remains as a brand name for the group. This Carnival group is known for its massive participation of floor-members, coziness and innovative touch in dance and interaction with the public. In 2009 Lisette Oduber-Chung took over leadership of T.O.B. over from her husband Otmar Oduber.
