From garbage to music – meet The Landfill Harmonic

This project is amazing; people living on a garbage dump in Paraguay make instruments from discarded materials. These are then used to learn the kids to play music and form an orchestra.

It’s so inspiring to see that, even against all odds, people find ways to make the world a little more beautiful with music.

A great example that you don’t need prime materials to make useful instruments and great music…

In a world that seems to get darker by the day, we need little sparks of light like these. Learn to take up all the garbage and make something beautiful. Art and beauty are just as necessary or us as bread, water and air, without it our spirit does suffocate. Something we often forget…
