Here is what London jazz news noted after Jazz au Chellah concert in front of more then thousand thrilled visitors:
"She is an audience-captivating phenomenon.With her trio she brought a different kind of energy and soon had the crowd pleading for more. Obrovac has a phenomenal stylistic range and has the temerity to want to take her trio into any number of moods."
