Today, David and Greg welcome JC, a fellow ChinesePod employee and music aficionado, as a guest host as they explore the sounds and history of "Red" Chinese music. Chinese revolutionary music was one of the main forms if not the primary form of musical expression in mainland China starting in the 1930's during the Sino-Japanese War up until the late 1970's. Enjoy the show and feel free to leave questions and comments below! For a more in-depth and academic look at a Chinese revolutionary song, check out our ChinesePod lesson on the song "labor is the most glorious!" If you're hungry for more info on the foundations of classical Chinese music, we did a newsletter a while back that covers the basics.
