Landfill Harmonic – The Recycled Orchestra
There are no limits to creativity! And really, it is not a lie: You CAN do anything, if you want it bad enough… People from this video are inspiration that will last me more than a day:)
Spread a word about this amazing project: Landfill Harmonic!
The world generates about a billion tons of garbage a year. Those who live with it and from it are the poor – like the people of Cateura, Paraguay. And here they are transforming it into beauty. Landfill Harmonic follows the Orchestra as it takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world. Follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum that out of necessity started creating instruments entirely out of garbage. Landfill Harmonic is a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution.
As they say, The world sends them garbage, they send back music!
But my favorite of favorite quotes is:
People realize we shouldn’t throw away trash carelessly.
Well, we shouldn’t throw away people either…
