Suggestions for modern samba/bossa nova drummers?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to get into the wonderful world of Brazilian music - however, I'm having a hard time finding well known drummers that I can study that apply these grooves onto the kit.

Of course I've studied what Tommy Igoe has to say on the subject, and I've got Ed Uribe's "Brazilian Percussion and Drum Set" along with Bob Weiner's "Brazilian Rhythms for Drumset", but I can't really find anyone who specialises in this sort of thing!


Cheers for any suggestions and help.
