Krall expressed her feelings, "It feels like home, the crowds really love singing and I enjoyed playing the piano for them". The enthusiasm was beyond what she could envision which made her long trip from Canada to Indonesia really paid off. Prambanan Jazz Festival 2018 was a truly memorable concert for many attendees.
