Pambiche mural

The next mural on our ongoing tour is Pambiche, on the east side of the Cuban restaurant of the same name at NE 28th & Glisan. The RACC description:

“Pambiche” is a cultural depiction of Cuba, inspired by its history, people and traditions. It blends Cuba’s unique music, dance, architecture, historical figures, and natural beauty. The mural gives visibility to the historically misconstrued people and culture of Cuba, and provides an educational opportunity for the community at large.

The mural is painted on the Apambichao Building, which has unique architecture identical to that of central Havana. The area in which it is located is frequented by Cuban refugees and the mural seeks to aid the tough transition they undertake when relocating.
