Степь К. К.
K.K. op de steppe
"K.K. Steppe" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It has a Slavic feel to it. The song starts out at a very fast pace, and the second portion starts out very slow and gradually gets faster and faster, similar to the Russian folk song "Kalinka." The middle is played as solo by a wind instrument that is similar to a flute in sound, which could be a Kalyuka, a Russian and Ukrainian instrument that has no holes.
A "steppe" is a large area of flat grassland with no forests mostly in southeastern Europe or Siberia, a part of Russia. It may be a reference to the Wild Fields of Ukraine, which was home to many Southern Russian and Ukrainian Cossack communities.
The album cover for "K.K. Steppe" features K.K. Slider and Fang wearing traditional Cossack clothing while performing the Hopak dance. Cossack-inspired architecture is in the background, and it is snowing. In New Leaf, the text at the top of the album cover is illegible, while in New Horizons, the text is Cyrillic letters that read the Russian title of the song, "Степь К. К." (Step' K. K.).
