Landfill Harmonic--the Amazing Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, Panama

Samer Rabadi Community Manager at Edutopia

I just saw a trailer for an upcoming documentary about Cateura, a slum built on a landfill in Panama, and I had to share it here.

The video is so inspiring! The people have created an orchestra made from recycled instruments and demonstrate how music finds a way to live, no matter the circumstances. And there are so many lessons that apply to ecology, social science, and world languages.

Just watch and you'll see. If nothing else, it'll put a huge smile on your face.
