Urban Voices: Mexico’s “Garbage Orchestra” makes music from trash

Americas Now

In Mexico City, a new musical group has literally risen from the rubble.

“Orquesta Basura” or Garbage Orchestra, makes incredible instruments, entirely from trash. The group started when four musicians realized the only way to get the instruments they needed, was to make them themselves. With a whole lot of imagination and a range of discarded objects – such as pots, pans, cartons and cans – they are able to create all kinds of music and even inspire a movement.

Meet the Urban Voice “Orquesta Basura.”
