During the Yan'an period, the Communist Party of China established a revolutionary base in Longdong, which became an important part of the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningxia border area centered on Yan'an in northern Shaanxi. In the modern history of China, in response to Mao Zedong's idea of "music serves the people", the people of Longdong area actively responded to it in the form of folk songs and ballads, which were widely sung. Just imagine, if there is no dissemination of music, revolutionary culture will not be truly realized. Therefore, from the perspective of communication, this article conducts an overall research and description on the dissemination motivation, mode, content and characteristics of music culture in Longdong area during this period.
