WOW, that is so freaking cool!
Amazing, that from trash they create an entire orchestra of instruments and learn to play them!
Talk about making do, they make DO something extraordinary.
What great hearts these people have.
I just love them.
We shouldn't throw people away either.
THat was a great line.
I would love to see how they actually put them together. I'm a musician but if I tried to make an instrument out of trash except for maybe some type of drum, i'm sure it would sound like crap haha.
It's amazing to see what people can do when they let their imagination go wild and use what is available to them. Good on them!
That was most impressive!!! And these kids really know how to play too!
I'd like to see this thread get more looks so I'm giving it a shameless bump.
Classical music is really the peak of Western culture and art, extremely sophisticated and technically demanding yet here is an orchestra made of some of the poorest people on the planet who have reproduced that peak of Western culture using what others have thrown away.
Which goes to show just how much more resourceful they are than us in our supposedly "advanced" cultures.
