Bossa Flor was originally the name given by Philippe Quevauviller in 2009 to a book project on bossa nova that he had entitled "Fleur de bossa". His first musical project entitled BosSalvador (initiated in 2007) evolved into the Sextet Bossa Flor and found a new dimension in 2012 with the meeting of Pierre Barouh, itself initiated by the common friend and producer, Emmanuel de Ryckel. A complicity and friendship are born around this "art of encounters" which is the mark of his career. Pierre became the tutelary figure of what was to become the ASBL Bossa Flor in 2016 (and later the label Bossa Flor Music), shortly before his departure to far away stars. What he called "underground rivers" generated multiple encounters of lovers of multicultural exchanges around French song, Brazilian music and jazz. Among the honorary members of the ASBL are the writer Jean-Paul Delfino and the bossanovist Didier Sustrac. Alongside his passion for bossa nova, Philippe Quevauviller remains attached to his musical roots in French chanson and jazz, and is created the Pataphysique Orchestra (in reference to Boris Vian) in 2019.

The projects have merged into a larger network around a "Collectif Bossa Flor" where artists linked by the same passion for these musics and their bridges meet. This page presents the biographies of this collective of artists, many of whom are linked to the most recent actuality of the Bossa Flor Music label, the double-album "Brassens dans tous ses états", and all of whom cross paths with each other over the course of the musical seasons, in Brussels or elsewhere! The collective is completed by the team of the ASBL whose names and photos are gathered in the page "The association" of the site.
