The story of Landfill Harmonic

This isn’t directly related to David but it is all about the power of music to change lives, save lives.

I saw a profile of this music program on 60 Minutes tonight and cried my way through the whole thing. It was about a town in Paraguay built around a landfill — a town where one music teacher started teaching kids to play violins, cellos, flutes — all made from the garbage found in the landfill.

I couldn’t figure out a way to embed the 60 Minutes segment (the link is here), but this is a preview of a feature documentary that’s being made about this beautiful story. Please watch, you’ll be glad you did.

    A very touching story – got teary-eyed watching it. Who knows how that grandmother changed the world through these many children. I hope David gets a chance to see this story.

    This vid is priceless and so touching. Making art out of garbage. Survival and enhancement of the human spirit. Everyone should watch it.
    In many ways, it makes me think of David. Even when life is harsh and times are bad, you can still face adversities – that “things in life don’t always happen immediately”.
    Thank you so much for posting it TOfan!

    What a touching, inspiring story, thanks for posting this TOfan. Loved it, so beautiful and heart warming to see what can come from simplistic creativity, determination, a touch of genius and a lot of heart. Music really is food for the soul and what an amazing way to bring music in to so many young lives and change lives in a beautiful way. What a wonderful story. Think David would love this. <3
