Listen to the kids who play in landfill

The kids are so good at playing they now travel with the orchestra they made, playing Beethoven!
Each instrument played, is made from rubbish found in the slums of Paraguay by the young person playing it. It is where these kids live and it is music from their hearts. They talk about it here in the two following short clips.
What a change from all the other rubbish going on in the world!

If you can stay here on this post for a bit longer play these two extra clips from the Ted lectures with Favio Chavez Orchestra Director who tells how it all started  (film October 2013)
