Summary
Venezuela has a unique system of music education, taking children from violent slums of Caracas and turning some of them into world-class musicians. The recording shows how Venezuelan visionary, Jose Antonio Abreu, has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of children over the past three decades. Children from streets dominated by the gun battles of gang warfare are taken into music schools, given access to music, and taught how to build a better society
