The song, named Mount Dingjun, is from the performance, Adventures of the Dragon Boat Festival 2022. The performance tells the multiple origins of the Dragon Boat Festival by expanding from the run-of-the-mill commemoration of Qu Yuan to the knowledge about astrology and solar terms.

As an original song, it was sung by the famous singer Tu Honggang, written by the widely-known lyricist Chen Tao, whose masterpieces include Farewell to My Concubineand Repay the Country with Supreme Loyalty, and Qian Lei, a composer who has produced a torrent of music works such as Big Fish and Lonely Warrior. The song also draws inspiration from the classic singing tune of the Peking Opera Mount Dingjun of the Tan School. The program paints a vivid picture of the Three Kingdoms period and applauds loyalty and righteousness, bringing the embodiment of patriotism to the next level.

The video was provided by the All-Media Marketing Planning Center of the Henan TV station.
