The Landfill Harmonic

“People realize that we shouldn’t throw away trash carelessly. Well, we shouldn’t throw away people either.”

~Favio Chavez, Orchestra Director

Just saw this article on NPR about the Landfill Harmonic, a documentary on a community in Cateura, Paraguay that’s building instruments for its kids out of trash who then can play in the local orchestra led by Favio Chavez. Seriously brought tears to my eyes.
