World Journal (New York) - - 世界快譯通 -

Parents all over the world often complain about their children's music being garbage.

全世界家長大概都會抱怨小孩聽垃圾音樂。For one group of poor kids i n Paraguay, however, who have found international fame by forming an orchestra1 which uses instruments2 built from trash, it is quite literally true.一群巴拉圭的窮小孩用垃圾製成的樂器組管弦樂團而且蜚聲國際,可說他們的音樂真的是從垃圾得來的。

The Orchestra of Recycled Instruments of Cateura will mark another notable chapter in their history this week when they will be the opening act for US heavy metal band Metallica on a six-nation South American tour.「卡圖拉回收管弦樂團」本周將為美國重金屬樂團「金屬製品」的南美巡迴演唱會做開場表演,即將為自己寫下新一則光榮篇章。

"It was a surprise for us," said orchestra director Favio Chavez. "We were not expecting that such a famous rock band would show interest in having us as the opening act for their concerts."

樂團總監查維斯說,「這對我們而言是驚喜。我們沒想到這麼紅的搖滾樂團會請我們做開場表演」。

The orchestra is made up of 40 teenage boys and girls born and raised near Cateura, the main garbage dump serving Paraguay's capital Asuncion.

40位在卡圖拉附近長大的少年與少女組成這個管弦樂團。卡圖拉是巴拉圭首都亞松森的垃圾場。

Their violins, flutes, saxophones, and other instruments are assembled from bits and pieces of detritus scavenged from the dump.
