As crazy as this may sound, nobody has ever heard Friday Kahlo‘s voice up until now. While the artist passed away in 1954, now in 2019 we are finally getting to hear her voice and it’s quite amazing.

The National Sound Library of Mexico have unearthed what they believe could be the first known voice recording of Frida Kahlo, taken from a pilot episode of 1955 radio show El Bachiller, which aired after her death.

The episode featured a profile of Kahlo’s artist husband Diego Rivera. In it, she reads from her essay Portrait of Diego.
