The significance of the song is it became the anthem of the 25th of April "Carnation Revolution" which saw dictator Antonio Salazar overthrown. During his regime the song was banned as it celebrated the camaraderie and socialist conscience of the hard working poor of the agricultural south. The memorial celebrates Zéca Afonso's words and the haunting music it was set to.
