Along the Sungari River

"Along the Sunghwa River" (Chinese: 松花江上; pinyin: Sōnghuā Jiāng Shàng) is a patriotic song from the War of Resistance in both the Republic of China (Taiwan) and the People's Republic of China.


The song describes the lives of the people who had lost their homeland in the Northeast after the Mukden Incident of 1931. It was written and composed by Zhang Hanhui.
