Orchestra of Recycled Instruments

Orchestra of Recycled Instruments is the first 'recycled' orchestra in the world, as its members create the musical instruments from various material found in garbage in Paraguay, including soft drink cans, junk, spoons, spatulas, pots, lids and kitchen material.
This team was organised due to their love for music, however the economic difficulties are so great, that they were unable to buy the musical instruments. The majority of the members are students at Sonidos de la Tierra, an organisation dedicated to the operation of workshops for music in poor areas of Paraguay. Recycling gave them the solution of achieving their goal. This group has not gone unnoticed, as they have performed more than 80 concerts, showing their undeniable talent.
