“Two big successes in just a few days - winning a young talent contest at the Bratislava Jazz Days and a concert as a support band of one of the biggest stars on the jazz scene, the American singer Dianne Reeves - are a great culmination of a yearlong endeavor. Anyone who has seen them live must be clear that they have a great future ahead.”
- MARFLAK Patrik.
“The couple, who met at the Prague Conservatory, reap success after success and after their short concert in the crowded hall followed a deserved long standing ovation.”
- GARAI Tomas
“Despite their very young age, Kristina Mihalova and Jakub Sedivy are among the esteemed personalities of the scene.”
- JASLOVSKY Marian
"Their unpublished song Found has probably achieved the greatest success. Kristina showed 100% control over her vocal cords, not only by intonation or selection of tone colors but also by setting them in time. The singer and modest guitarist with no less precise technique and feeling gave the impression that in addition to musical harmony, it seemed like they have also synchronized inhalations and exhalations.”

October 31, 2019
,,However, the strong international start of the festival was immediately followed by the performance of the domestic duo Kristina Mihalova and Jakub Sedivy at the Young Talent Stage (B stage). The couple, who met at the Prague Conservatory, reap success after success and after their short concert in the crowded hall followed a deserved long standing ovation. In addition to jazz standards, for example, they played an intimate remodel of Too Young to Die by Jamiroquai, but also their unpublished song Found, which has probably achieved the greatest success. Kristina showed 100% control over her vocal cords, not only by intonation or selection of tone colors but also by setting them in time..."

SUPPORTING LEGENDARY STANLEY CLARKE IN BRATISLAVA
May 7, 2019
,,I must confess I had mixed feelings that such a chamber group would perform on the big stage. However, my concerns have vanished. This sympathetic duo showed a great performance that captivated all listeners. The intimate but captivating Kristina`s voice had a self-confident and sensitive guitar accompaniment that managed to cover all the musical components at a very good level. The duo played as one and they understand each other well. Their repertoire consisted of original authorial work, their adaptations of compositions of current young stars such as Jazzmeia Horn or Aaron Taylor. However, Jimmy Rowles' jazz standard "The Peacocks", which was made famous by the duo Stan Getz and Bill Evans, was also heard.
