CATEURA, Paraguay (KXAN) - Families who live in a Paraguayan slum built on a landfill recycle trash and then sell it -- in a place where a violin costs more than a house.
Juan Manuel Chavez, 19, takes full advantage of his cello made from an oil can and an old wooden spoon. A 13-year-old girl also plays a violin recycled from the landfill trash.
Both are part of an orchestra in the impoverished community of Cateura, now home to the resourceful Landfill Harmonic. They perform with the reclaimed trash eventually crafted into instruments.
"I never imagined myself building an instrument like this, and I feel very happy when I see a kid playing a recycled violin," says one of the crafters in the video.
"My life would be worthless without music," says one girl in the video.
"When I listen to the sound of a violin, I feel butterflies in my stomach," says another girl.
In the film about people transforming trash into music, you can check out the YouTube video that follows the moving story about love, courage and creativity.
"People realize that we shouldn't carelessly throw away trash," said the instructor in the video. "And we shouldn't carelessly throw away people, either."
