font size    

China held a symposium in Beijing on June 10 to commemorate the centennial birth anniversary of Xian Xinghai, a great Chinese musician who composed revolutionary songs in the 1930s.

Xian's work, which included "Yellow River Cantata," inspired the Chinese people to stand up against Japanese aggression, Liu Yunshan, head of the Department of Publicity of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said at the symposium.

"We should learn from him his inflexible spirit of always sticking to the path of catering to the taste and interests of the Chinese nation and the common people," Liu said.

Liu, also member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and member of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee, called upon all artists and writers to create more masterpieces in order to rejuvenate the nation and serve both the people and socialism.
