Can't get enough of Frida Kahlo or Mexico? Then there are two playlists for you on Spotify; one with Frida's Favourites and one with songs inspired by Frida.
Music was indispensable in Frida Kahlo's life. As a child, she listened to the music her father played on the piano: Beethoven and Strauss. Later, in New York, she was introduced to jazz music. And of course, Mexican Folk and Mariachi were also very important to her. In this playlist you will find Frida Kahlo’s favourite songs.
Inspired by Frida
Frida Kahlo often referred to popular music in her paintings. Now it is the other way around. Frida Kahlo is so popular that she herself is an inspiration for pop artists. For example, singer Chris Martin was inspired by the painting 'Viva La Vida' and named his song after the work. Madonna also often refers to Frida Kahlo in her video clips. She even has a few Frida works hanging in her home. These songs can be found in the playlist 'Inspired by Frida’.
