A Grrr8 Singer Deserves a Beautiful Eagle Diver
I got two eagle diver Ocarinas and what a precious gift! Handmade and solid as it will accompany many musicial outings. Thank you Georgina Cabrera, for you great musicianship. Now we have to learn how to use it! We live in Venice Beach, so have to practice on the shoreline.
My daughter loves it. The high notes actually work and its very cute! I also love the attention in the packaging and the beautiful wrapping.
