LANDFILL HARMONIC

On Saturday, I came across an interesting post in my FB Wall.  It was a documentary about young poor musicians from a landfill town in Paraguay who triumphed over their life situation to make beautiful music.   By all accounts, the story line is trite.  It has been the subject of  movies.  Even so, stories of triumph over adversity is always heartwarming and inspiring.   And the story of these young musicians is nothing less.  However,   there is  one thing that sets this particular group of musicians apart – their instruments were fashioned from the materials surrounding them – trash.   Yet, when one does not pay attention to the instrument and just listen to the music, he/she will never know that the sound came from garbage.  The music swelled as proudly as though it came from a Stradivarius’ belly.

Here is the video teaser I watched several times in FB.  I hope that it will bring you joy. 🙂
