Mexican Officials Believe They've Found the Only Known Recording of  Frida Kahlo's Voice


Frida Kahlo's voice may have finally been unearthed, according to researchers at Mexico's National Sound Library. If confirmed, officials say it would be the first record of the Mexican artist's voice.


The director of the Frida Kahlo Museum, Hilda Trujillo, told The Associated Press on Thursday that "there's still a long way to go" to verify the voice in question.


"I personally think that the art world has to be very strict in its judgment and can't rush to assumptions," Trujillo said.


The 90-second audio clip, which comes from a 1950s pilot episode of the Mexican radio program "The Bachelor," consists of a woman describing Kahlo's former husband and painting partner Diego Rivera. Archivists first began digitizing recordings of the show in 2007.
