    Great post, LordJim.

    "We need to make intelligence hip instead of clothes and cell phones."

    Tweet about what kind of syrup you put on your pancakes at iHop, or help create a vibrant musical culture from the muck around you? These young people are learning more than music. They appear to appreciate every note they play on those crudely fantastic instruments.

    Looks like a post-apocalyptic orchestra.

    Thank you LordJim and IAB. This is the kind of stuff i come to see. This was fantastically wonderful. Music is a universal language.

    Awesome! We really need to do that all over the world. It`s an art we had hundreds of years ago. To create something from rough materials. We need to teach our kids how to do this again. This was a great presentation of how people can come togeter without violence. Music doth sooth the savage beast. And brings us all together.

    Violins don`t cost more than a house.
    A violin made of extinct wood does.

    If you want a violin, go to Target. You can get one for less than the price of a TV.

    @ CodeJockey:

    I don`t think that they have a Target where those kids live. And even if they did, I`d have to imagine that yes, a violin could very well cost more than a house. When its a struggle every day just to survive, buying a violin, or any other instrument, is the last thing on people`s minds. What is going on there is truly beautiful!
