Chinese National Anthem (MP3 Download)

China Overview   Fact Sheet    National Anthem     China Travel FAQ    

It is a song chosen by history, a song to be forever remembered, a song that has concentrated the struggling spirit of Chinese nation – it is called March of the Volunteers.

Written by Tian Han and composed by Nie Er, its history can be dated back to 1935 when Japanese launched the war of aggression. Just when the whole nation was preparing for a fight against the Japanese army and to protect motherland, the song was heard “The Peoples of China are in the most critical time, everybody must roar his defiance. Arise! Arise! Arise! Millions of hearts with one mind…”it inspired everyone from volunteers to common people to fight against invaders. In 1949, it was pegged as temporary national anthem. But it was not until 1978 that it was adopted as national anthem by constitution to state that "to make more contributions to humankind, Chinese people will march on and march on with one mind!"

Inspiring and Sonorous, the national anthem echoes in the heart of every Chinese no matter how time changes, because it has become the soul of Chinese nation!
