Disarming and charming, musically talented and original, young and ambitious, sweet and vicious, sharp and funny, energetic and fascinating, blond and red, Dutch and Norwegian. That's what Maartje & Kine are!

At TEDxDelft they performed two songs. The first one is "the pandasong", the second is a piece by Astor Piazzolla and is called "Escualo".

On world animal day, Maartje en Kine sing and play a song about the panda. The song is about the possible extinction of this beautiful animal because it refuses to have sex and reproduce. Quotes from the song:
- They're all watching panda-porn but not to their delight
- The pandy lady masturbates only with bamboo
- If you mix two pandas, there simply is no way that black and white will give you fifty shades of grey
- Once you go white and black, you'll never come back

Astor Piazzolla - Escualo (The shark)
Ástor Pantaleón Piazzolla (March 11, 1921 -- July 4, 1992) was an Argentine tango composer and bandoneón player. His oeuvre revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed nuevo tango, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
