Orchestra of Garbage

Kids down in Paraguay making instruments out of junk they've found in landfills.

Just like Fat Albert and the Gang Junk Yard Band from 1972.

Why am I having trouble believing that the kids built these instruments themselves and even that these kids were the ones crawling around the garbage heaps.

I guess I'm just a skeptic at heart.

BTW.... let me be the first to wish y'all a hearty BAH! HUMBUG! this fine holiday season. angry

P.D.Q. Bach comes to mind ...

Composition for Sewerflute.
Concerto for Horn And Hardart.

Expat, the video doesn't say the kids built them -- the guy who's talking about building them is middle aged.
