Sometimes you've just got to make do with what you've got, but that doesn't mean you have to want for things, things like musical instruments. The upcoming documentary Landfill Harmonic (a totally righteous pun, I feel obligated to note) is about a slum in Cateura, Paraguay that still has an orchestra, and orchestra with instruments made of trash.
The film isn't out yet, but this teaser gives a great look at the instruments themselves which—despite being pretty weird-looking—sound great. In fact, you could argue the trash gives them a pretty awesome aesthetic. Makes that "crappy" electric guitar you bought as a kid look a little better, doesn't it? [Reddit]
