Music is a gift available to all -- and especially treasured by those with the least -- as the documentary Landfill Harmonic shares. It's an inspiring story of a community of waste pickers in Paraguay who create instruments from these same garbage piles and work together to create The Recycled Orchestra which stirs the soul.
Accomplished violinist, Caleb Hans Polashek brings the sound of their music to life as he plays a violin constructed so beautifully (and resourcefully) by this community -- one of only five of these instruments currently in the United States.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
