Landfill Harmonic

Er is een prachtig filmpje beschikbaar over een nieuw initiatief in


Paraguay getiteld Landfill Harmonic. Kinderen uit arme wijken mogen muziek leren maken op instrumenten die gemaakt zijn van gerecycled materiaal. De initiatiefnemers zoeken op dit moment financiering voor het maken van een film over dit mooie project, dat gestart is in 2011. Je kunt de ontwikkelingen volgen via Facebook.

“Too many children in the world are born into lives with little or no hope. Our film reveals a mind-boggling, inventive effort to change that – musical instruments made from trash. In the barrios of Paraguay, a humble garbage picker uses his ingenuity to craft instruments out of recycled materials – and a youth orchestra is born. Music arises and children find new dreams.

Our film will showcase the power of creativity, hope, empowerment, and community work. We began official production in 2011. We filmed some of the children who learned to play violin, flute, drums, cello, string bass, and more – all made from recycled metal drums, tin cans, and plastic pipes. Their spirits soar with each note they play.

We are returning to the village in 2012 to update the progress of three young children who recently entered the orchestra. Landfill Harmonic shows how trash and recycled materials can be transformed into beautiful sounding musical instruments, but more importantly, it brings witness to the transformation of precious human beings.

Our lives were changed in making this film so far – and with your help in allowing us to complete it, we hope to change yours.”
