Garbage Instruments

I’m impressed by “The Orchestra of Recycled Instruments” established by Favio Chávez. “The world sends us garbage, we send back music” is his statement. He inspires in Asuncion, Paraguay, youthful musicians to play exclusively on garbage instruments: Double basses and cellos from oil drums, violins or a guitar from cans.

  1. Making beauty from a screwed up world, Frizz. The quote that struck me was that the instruments cannot be stolen because they only have value when the kids are playing them. I second that, but how sad.
