What a wonderful thing! This is a very heartwarming story
One mans' trash is another mans treasure. The typical stereotypes of slums are that they are dirty, poor and lifeless. However, the people in this slum have so much more to offer. Searching through the trash, they are able to piece together junk into recycled instruments that they use to liven the slums, their lives and the world. Music is a way to brighten their today and look forward to brighter tomorrows.
This video was very moving. I was surprised how the recycled instruments sounded exactly like the real things. I think this should make us think about how much of the trash we generate could be put to some use besides rotting in a landfill. It also shows the ingenuity of people to find a use for a resource even if that resource is trash. It just goes to show that the saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” is true.
