Paraguay's rubbish band recycles rhythms

Young orchestra is making tunes out of trash by building instruments out of other people's garbage.

    It is unlikely that an entire orchestra could be found in the middle of a rubbish dump.

    But one group of young musicians in Paraguay is proving that they can literally turn trash into something to be treasured.

    From items such as used X-rays, oil barrels, and even bottle caps, they re-create Beethoven, Henry Mancini, and even the Beatles.

    Al Jazeera’s Gerald Tan reports.
