Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Achievements

Siren Song

Rescue pirate hostages by distracting enemies with "dancers."  

This achievement can first be earned in Sequence 3, Memory 2 - Now Hiring. You will start the memory at a tavern. If you open up your map you will see a blue flower icon just northeast of you across the square. Approach them and press to hire them. On the north side of the tavern you started in are some stairs, so walk up those and then head south toward the church in the restricted zone. Stay on the right side of the church and make sure that you have the dancers with you so that you are hidden. If you get ahead of them the guards will detect you and shoot the hostages. The two gunners guarding the hostages are on the south side of the church, so press when you see it pop up as an option over their heads, and then approach the hostages and press to recruit them and unlock the achievement.

You can also unlock this achievement in free play if you see a rescue pirate icon where they are going to be executed and have dancers nearby. However, those stop spawning at a certain point in the story, so at that point you will need to replay the memory above if you have yet to earn Siren Song.

Walkthrough of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag to get the Siren Song Achivement. To do this select sequence 3 and memory 2, then you just have to hire the "dancers" services to save our comrades.
It is in Spanish, but if you have any question just ask.

To do this you must let some of your crew members die. Just board an enemy ship and sit back while your crew does the fighting. Many will die. After that, head to Kingston and go to coordinates 623,172. There is a restricted area where two enemies are aiming at captured pirates. You can hire some dancers nearby, just up the street. Send the dancers to these two enemies and once they are distracted sneak behind their backs and free the pirates.
Alternatively, you could replay DNA Sequence 3, Memory 2 where you had to free some pirate hostages during a story mission. This does only work with enemies aiming at pirates, not the ones in a fight or at an execution.

Thanks! I've been trying to get them to distract the ones that were fighting and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work.

The dancers distracted the guards but I fell off the building and I got spotted and ended up in a fight, when I released the hostages the achievement still popped.

I did this in Havana at 240,607 just after Sequence 2, Memory 3 - Mister Walpole, I Presume?, but you can probably do it a little sooner.
Hired Dancers and hid in the bushes to get close enough distracted the guards and even freed the hostages from the bushes.
The Side quest even wanted me to free them undetected so it all worked!
so no need to wait till Sequence 3, Memory 2 like it says
