Zhang Liang, also Liu Bang’s follower, ordered the barracks to play thte music of Chu , which shook the troop’s morale of Chu. Xiang Yu doubted that Han army was approaching, so he got up to drink with his mistress named Yu, and danced with chanting a tragic air. Having sung several times later, his mistress Yu joined in. Then Xiang Yu shed tears, and all his followers wept and could not bear to look at him. Chanted so fervently and sadly that the song enjoyed great popularity afterwards.
