    Onze (Música Inéditas de Adoniran Barbosa) is a special edition album with eleven previously unpublished songs by Adoniran Barbosa (1910–1982). The album was released by the Eisenbahn brewery in August 2020, the year that one of the greatest artists of Brazilian music would complete eleven decades. The name “Onze” also refers to his most famous song, “Trem das onze” (“The eleven o’clock train”). Great names of contemporary MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) reinterpreted the songs and brought this tribute to life.

    For the cover, the idea was to use different widths and sizes from the Druk series to translate the Paulista samba rhythm from São Paulo, which is more restrained than the Carioca rhythm from Rio de Janeiro. The 3-color silkscreen printing gave a tactile surprise to the set.
