The Landfill Harmonic Orchestra

"A community like Cateura is not the place to have a violin..."
The Cateura Dump, in the Bañado Sur area along the Paraguay River, is the final dumping site for more than 1,500 tons of solid waste each day. Poor management has caused the country’s most essential water supply to become dangerously polluted and the environment contaminated. Not the place you'd imagine, amongst child labour and 2,500 families who try to survive each day, to find a fully blown and astoundingly innovative harmonic orchestra.
