Landfill Harmonic

MY LIFE WOULD BE WORTHLESS without music,” says one of the girls from the orchestra. I think this is true for many of us, more than we know it. Music is built into us; it’s inherent. That’s why you see those YouTube videos of babies laughing and dancing when dad turns the tunes on.

The truth of that statement is probably even more profound for these kids who live in a community called Cateura in Paraguay, a “slum built on a landfill.” Its residents have been scouring the landfill and building violins, cellos, and other instruments from refuse, used by the musicians in the Recycled Orchestra.
