Landfill Harmonic - Inspiration from the Hood
A few stories to catch up on but I just wanted to pause for some inspiration from the hood. The Landfill Harmonic is a group of kids that live in the slums of Paraguay and made musical instruments from landfill trash. I first saw them on a Lindsey Stirling video.
The website for the movie has a powerful video about the slum that is built on a landfill and states "If you ae born in the wrong place, you don't always have the right to dream." The video is called dreamer and states in darkness you shine. So they do.
"The world sends us trash, we send back music." Beethoven's 5th Symphony - Transcendence
