In the slums of Cateura, Paraguay, everyday struggles don’t involve rush hour traffic, gas prices or unpaid vacation days. Rather, living itself becomes a primary concern, as poverty strikes this area of the world especially hard. However, within this community built surrounding a landfill, an extremely unique development has risen for its children.

Its residents, who recycle the trash of the landfill and sell it to make money, have constructed a full orchestra of instruments from these thrown away items. Now, the children of the community have formed a full orchestra and are able to play music together.

This extraordinary story is especially surprising for this community, considering a normally manufactured violin is worth more than a house. Check out the trailer for Landfill Harmonic below and visit their site for more details.
