Ka-Kaa

Anybody else see this and just wonder to themselves, what the heck were they thinking when they named that disc?

Las Aves means "the birds" (or just "birds") in Spanish, and it looks like all of their upcoming releases have birds themes. And of course Kaka just reminds me of the Brazilian fútbol player.

Maybe one of the Finns can shed some light.

Looks like Kastaplast is making their discs.

Birds make a sound that resembles "Ka-Kaa"

After a google of finish birds and Kaa. I landed on a website showing a bird called the Red Throated Diver which is found in Finland and makes the howling sound of "ka-ka-ka-kaa-ka-ka".

I may have just over analyzed that...

I can independently confirm that some birds do, in fact, make a sound that resembles "Ka-Kaa."

I will always say it as if I am trying to call a bird.
