Monday Motivation: Landfill Harmonic

“The world sends us garbage; we send back music.”
Favio Chavez, Orchestra Director

This Paraguayan village located next to a landfill is an unlikely place for a children’s orchestra. A real viloin here is worth more than a house. But it is home to the Landfill Orchestra.

The resourceful villagers of Catuera figured out how to make their own instruments out of recycled garbage.

It is a story of hope born out of hopelessness and life reborn from death. Enjoy the music! Have a great week.
