The Zhou Dynasty (周朝; Wade-Giles: Chou Dynasty) (late 10th century BC to late 9th century BC - 256 BC) followed the Shang (Yin) Dynasty and preceded the Qin Dynasty in China.
In Chinese Marxist historiography, the Zhou dynasty marks the began of the feudal phase of Chinese history, a period which is said to extend to the fall of the Qing dynasty in 1911.
Because of this shift, historians divide the Zhou era into Western Zhou (西周, pinyin Xī Zhōu) from late 10th century BC to late 9th century up until 771 BC and Eastern Zhou (Traditional Chinese: 東周 Simplified Chinese: 东周, pinyin: Dōng Zhōu) from 770 up to 221 BC.

 King of Masks (CHINA 1999)

Tirta played a King's Indian opening against Zhao, but he was not consistent with the opening he opted for, and did not look to build a counterattack on the king's wing while at the other side he was enduring a blistering attack from Zhao, who forced him to resign after 34 moves.
The mistake was compounded by his seemingly unmotivated play, with Utut particularly criticizing the Bishop retreat as being inconsistent with the theme he chose for the game.

Some are little more than an assortment of pieces, but others hang together effectively on their own, like this one.
The idea of Chinese music--both popular and operatic--juxtaposed with the sounds of Nat King Cole performing Latin music might seem bizarre, but it works beautifully, sustaining a lush, romantic mood created both by the strings and the '40s Chinese music, itself a tinkling Hollywood pastiche.
But as atmospheric as all this is, one track stands out above the others: "Blue," actually a version of the classic "St. James' Infirmary," takes on another dimension in Chinese hands.
