Testimonials

I purchased 3 CD's from Garinet, Malia Polia by Jimmy Suazo, Agrupacion by Solis, and the CD dedicated to my late uncle, Isabel Flores sung by Pen Cayetano and Mohobub Flores. I am still enjoying those CD's and hope to purchase more from Garinet. I like that fact that I did not have to wait 2-3 weeks for the products, I received them within 4 days of purchase.
