Landfillharmonic’s recycled orchestra

When you live on a landfill in Cateura, Paraguay, and in such poverty even your children must work in it, what do you do to bring them joy?

Landfill workers Favio Chavez, a musician, and Nicolas Gomez, a luthier, decided to build instruments from trash and create a children’s orchestra. The “Recycled Orchestra” movement even inspired a movie: Landfill Harmonic.

Since no release date is specified on the Web page, I assume they’re in need of financial support to complete the project. If you care to find out more you will certainly be inspired to help.

Human ingenuity never ceases to amaze.

What incredible musical activities can you share?

The Recycled Orchestra story is humbling and makes you profoundly grateful, especially when your own children get to participate in music, like my son Cutter's digital performance at ASU. @2011 ANVidean

The Recycled Orchestra story is humbling and inspires profound gratitude, especially when your own children get to participate in music far on the opposite spectrum, like my son Cutter’s digital performance at ASU.
