Victor Jara ‎– Canto Por Travesura - Die Betschwester und andere frivole Gesänge (Pläne,1980)


"Canto Por Travesura" was originally prepared to release  in Chile in September 1973. The military coup stopped the release and only a few copies of the original release reached the audience. In 1976 and 1978 several labels published this album in Spain and Italy.

The german Pläne label published a re-release as "Betschwestern und andere frivole Gesänge" in the year 1980, even translating the song titels.

The album is a collection of southern Chilean folk songs with a consistent thematic style popular in Chilean folklore - the mocking of social norms with mischievous jokes, riddles and dark humor.
True to the title ("travesura" translates roughly as "prank") and the cover drawing of a cat pulling up the curtain on an old hag in déshabillé, "Canto Por Travesura" is largely comprised of light material from Victor Jara. Every selection but one is a traditional song given a new arrangement by Jara. Songs like "La Palmatoria," "Iba Yo Para una Fiesta," and "La Diuca" aren't powerhouses, but they have the simple grace that pervades all of Jara's recordings.
