Landfill Harmonic

A testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit. In Paraguay there is a children’s orchestra living next to one of South America’s largest landfills. A music teacher and a rubbish picker scavenge materials from the dump to make instruments for the local children; flutes from pipes, guitars from packing crates and violins from oil drums. When their story goes viral the ensemble are propelled into the global spotlight, touring with some of their favourite heavy metal bands. However, when a natural disaster devastates their community, the orchestra provides an instinctive source of hope.
