Info

I compose this tune inspired by The Irish and German Mercenary Soldiers’ Revolt who were recruited in their homelands to fight the war for Brazil, discovered that the promises made to them by the Brazilian government were not fulfilled. In the revolt, the soldiers took control of large parts of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Citizens o…f the town and marines from French and British warships suppressed the revolt, and many of the participants were exiled. More info at:
