The recycled orchestra

Thanks to a Facebook friend who drew my attention to this amazing video  about young people living in a slum in Paraguay who have created musical instruments out of the rubbish they have found around where they live.

It has been produced by Landfill Harmonic and is a short clip from a forthcoming documentary in which the young people talk about how their instruments have been made  and how they have formed the “recycled orchestra”.  The video is in Spanish (with subtitles) and would fit in very well with lessons to do with

  • the environment
  • poverty
  • leisure
  • comparing the lives of young people around the world
