A Certain Kind of Happy: Landfill Harmonic

A Certain Kind of Happy for me is that feeling you get when you cannot forget a video, image, or person simply because what they do is so transformative. With Landfill Harmonic, Alejandra Nash and Juliana Penaranda-Loftus bring a story from Cateura, Paraguay where "the world sends us garbage, we send back music." In an ingenious project that demonstrates creative and simple solutions can bring powerful social transformation to the poorest communities, kids with extraordinary talent are paired with a gifted teacher, Favio Chavez, and provided musical instruments sculpted from landfill trash.. from which a gift is born.

Precious lives are given an opportunity to make exquisite music and show that passion and soulfulness can thrive even in the simplest circumstances when the creative spirit is unleashed.
