Landfill Harmonic – A Symphony of the Human Spirit

Landfill Harmonic – A Symphony of the Human Spirit

The Recycled Orchestra of Cateura is a Paraguayan musical youth group of kids that live next to one of South America’s largest landfills. This is the astounding and inspirational story of an orchestra playing music from instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. However, when a natural disaster devastates their community, the orchestra provides a source of hope for the town.
