The episode featured a profile of Kahlo's artist husband Diego Rivera.

The voice thought to be the painter's can be heard reading a text titled "Portrait of Diego", according to the release.

"With an Asiatic head from which dark hair grows, so thin and fine that it appears to float in the air, he is a huge, enormous child, with a friendly face and a sad gaze", what is thought to be Kahlo's voice reads liltingly, in Spanish. It is thought to have aired in 1955, a year after Kahlo's death, but is estimated to have been recorded in 1953 or '54.

"Frida's voice has always been a great enigma, a never-ending search", the head of the national audio archives, Pavel Granados, told a press conference at which the ministry unveiled the newly discovered recording.

"Until now, there had never been a recording of Frida Kahlo", he added.

The recording was made for the pilot of the radio show "El Bachiller".

The sound library has 1,300 El Bachiller tapes among its collection, which will need to be digitised and cataloged in order to ascertain if more of Kahlo's voice is among them.
