Speaking about representing her country at the carnival, the Manabi-born singer said she is excited.

"I hope through our performances, more Chinese people could know about traditional Ecuadorian music," she said in an interview with China Daily on Friday. "Traditional Ecuadorian music is very pure and touches the heart, and I want to to promote traditional tunes," she said, as traditional music around the world is gradually losing audiences to pop.

Seven years ago, the trio took the Ecuadorian musical scene by surprise via infusing traditional tunes with electronic music, rock and pop, bringing the country's folk music types such as Pasillo, Yaravi and San Juanito, to greater appreciation among the young generation.

Since their debut in 2012, their music videos have garnered millions of views on YouTube, creating big hits including La Bocina and Palomita Errante. They have toured in countries including the United States, Mexico, Colombia and Peru.
