The mural committee and La Peña are proud to present Homenaje a Rafael Manriquez en el Natalicio del Poeta, A Benefit for the Song of Unity Mural, Rafa’s beloved project. On June 26th, 2013 we were saddened by Rafael Manriquez’ sudden passing, Rafael’s music was the heart and soul of our community; he had originally planned this date as a joyful tribute to Pablo Neruda. We will continue his plan with this celebration of Rafael’s compositions including those he created with Neruda’s poetry. And, we also extend an invitation for musicians in the community to join us in paying homage to Rafael by participating in the open mike session starting at 8:45 PM. Folks, we are still $11,000 from our original goal of $26,000 to fund the Song of Unity mural re-do at La Peña. Donations of funds, time and materials have been coming in since the beginning of the year. The old mural removal and salvage will start in July, the artists are ready to begin the final stages of the mural re-do. We are very grateful for your good wishes and contributions but funding is still underway. News- Rafael Manriquez will be included on the new rendition of the Song of Unity mural.
