National Sound Library of Mexico believes audio is of artist reading from her essay Portrait of Diego during the pilot of radio show El Bachiller.

"Have you ever imagined how the voice of #FridaKahlo could have sounded?" the sound library, Fonoteca Nacional, asked in a Tweet.

Kahlo's voice is one of the "most requested and sought after" from the library, said Fonoteca Nacional Director Pável Granados, according to the release.

Authorities will continue to investigate to make sure it is Kahlo's voice, the department said.

Kahlo died in 1954, and the radio show notes the audio is the voice of the artist, "who no longer exists," the department said. The recording is thought to have been made in 1953 or 1954.

There are 1,300 tapes in the "El Bachiller" collection still to be digitized and cataloged, so another recording of Kahlo's voice may exist, the department said.
