Land FillHarmonic Orchestra | Community living on Landfill Create Joy with Musical Instruments Made from Trash |

landfillharmonicA slum in Paraguay is built on a landfill. After a member of the community found a violin in the trash, he decided to repair it. This lead members in the community to take an interest in constructing recycled musical instruments from the trash. Now they’ve built an orchestra around it and are making a movie about the whole process; which shares their creativity and joy and pride in what they have accomplished to dramatically improve the quality of life in their community. http://www.facebook.com/landfillharmonicmovie

Now, they not only embrace music and get a lot of joy from making recycled instruments, but have their own orchestra and are making a movie about their accomplishments. The makers of the instruments feel joy to have created something that others appreciate, and the people playing the music adore it, and give themselves as well as everyone else joy as they perform.

Wonderful! Landfiil_Harmonic
