you make beautiful things



I found this video this morning on my sister's friend's website, with this description:

"The video above is a teaser trailer for a documentary called Landfill Harmonic, which tells the story of a youth orchestra in Cateura, Paraguay who are so poor that they create their instruments from the trash in their area.

Using anything from old wood, gas cans, and recycled metals, every single instrument in the orchestra is hand created without the use of new parts, besides the bows and the strings for the stringed instruments. It’s a testament to how innovation and resourcefulness can lead to the production of something incredibly beautiful, even when it seems like an impossibility."
