"La Jardinera / Es Impossible" is a 78 RPM song by the famous Chilean singer-songwriter Violeta Parra and her daughter Isabel Parra , released in 1954 on the Odeon label . Both Side A and Side B are Violet compositions. Mother and daughter sing accompanied by anonymous musicians not mentioned in the album, who play harp, guitars, double bass and accordion. [ 1 ]

Due to a contract that the Las Hermanas Parra duo had with the Odeon label, the album had to come out under this authorship, despite the fact that Violeta's sister, Hilda Parra , did not participate in its creation. [ 1 ]

The song "La jardinera" would later appear on Violeta's 1960 album, Toda Violeta Parra . The song "It's impossible" , for its part, is a corrido that had already appeared before as Side A of the Las Hermanas Parra single "It's impossible / Luis Ingrato . "
