“Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun is an album by Red Sparowes to be released September 2006. The album follows the story of the Great Leap Forward, more specifically recounting the Great sparrow campaign – mass killing of sparrows (along with rats, flies and mosquitos), that were seen as pests, and fed on a portion of the harvest. Peasants were encouraged to bang pots and pans to scare sparrows into continuing flight, and eventually dying from exhaustion. Whilst the harvest of the year after the campaign was larger, there was a massive rise in locust numbers in the late 50s, as a result of the significantly lower population of sparrows, a major predator of the locust. This caused a widespread famine where, between 1959 and 1961, 30 million people died of starvation.”
