The Landfill Harmonic Orchestra

We all know that musicians are dedicated. Once you get the bug, that's all you want to, almost at any cost. We also know that most musicians suffer from G.A.S. (gear acquisition syndrome), always wanting the next best piece of gear that will hopefully make them sound better.

But what if you were so poor that you could barely afford to eat, let alone buy an adequate instrument? That's the case in this video, as you see some people in Cateura, Paraguay who are so poor that they literally live in a slum on a landfill. The only way they can afford an instrument is to build it out of recycled materials.

After you watch this video, you'll appreciate how well most of us have it.
