Video from KarmaTube
I would like to share this inspiring video because it reminds me of the power of creativity and perception. Who would have thought that instruments could be created from castaway oilcans, pieces of discarded wood, spoons and buttons? Nicolas, a recycler with no previous experience making musical instruments, and living hand-to-mouth by the garbage dump in Catuera, Paraguay did just that.
Then inspired by this ingenuity and creativity, Maestro Luis Szaran, director of “Sounds of the Earth,” formed a “recycled orchestra” with children living at the dump. “Our main goal isn’t to form good musicians, but to form good citizens.” In challenging times this is what we need to focus on! Now 30 members strong, I invite you to listen to the sweet sounds of these recycled instruments and the hopes and dreams of the children who play them.
I would also like to invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE, because they are a simple and scientifically way to help you transform your perceptions and activate your own creativity.
