Cateura, Paraguay is a village practically built on a landfill where many of its inhabitants spend their days searching the trash for sellable items. Through this daily process, one man discovered the opportunity to take items he found and modify it into a violin. Now there is an entire orchestra of young people playing music from instruments made made out of recycled trash. What an amazing testament to how beauty can emerge from the most unlikely of places.
A flashmob invaded a Copenhagen, Denmark Metro train last month, but in this case, the flashmob was the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra.
They treated unsuspecting commuters to a performance of Grieg's "Peer Gynt," and creative agency Makropol captured the whole thing on video.
Right about now, a few people on that train are probably wishing they had taken their earbuds out.
