In the late 1950s, Vinícius de Moraes (1913 - 1980) composed two songs for the film Black Orpheus, by Frenchman Marcel Camus, which was awarded the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscar for best foreign film. His diplomatic career continues in Uruguay, where he stays for 3 years. In Brazil, Bossa Nova began, one of the main movements in Brazilian music.

At the beginning of the 1960s, the poet's songs continued to be recorded by many artists, but Vinícius de Moraes decided to record his voice, for the first time, on an album with Tom Jobim. At the same time, the poet met two other talented musicians, Carlos Lyra and Baden Powell, with whom he lived, drank and composed for three months, producing one of the most important works of Brazilian popular music, the LP Os Afro-Sambas, recorded in 1966. This document deals exactly with this meeting, the song "Rancho das Flores" is one of the productions of the duo Vinícius de Moraes - Baden Powell, recorded in 1964.
