The Recycled Orchestra In Paraguay Transforms Garbage Into Harmony

This is truly inspirational…

Landfill Harmonic is an upcoming feature-length documentary about a remarkable musical orchestra in Paraguay, where the musicians play instruments made from trash.

Cateura, Paraguay is a town essentially built on top of a landfill. Garbage collectors browse the trash for sellable goods, and children are often at risk of getting involved with drugs and gangs. When orchestra director Szaran and music teacher Fabio set up a music program for the kids of Cateura, they soon have more students than they have instruments.

That changed when Szaran and Fabio were brought something they had never seen before: a violin made out of garbage. Today, there’s an entire orchestra of assembled instruments, now called The Recycled Orchestra.

Check out the trailer below, this film is directed by Graham Townsley and due to be released in 2014 and we can’t wait to see it. In the meanwhile, stop by their facebook page and show them some support!
