Celebrate Latin American music and children’s books with Grupo Cantaro at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sept. 15 at MetroTech Commons.

The Mexican group performs Latin American songs and rhymes at the annual festival’s Children’s Day. The musical-vocal ensemble founded in 1979 is dedicated to composing, arranging, and performing songs for children. The band has released seven albums, the most recent one being Fabulas de Mi Granja (“Fables from My Farm”). Its Latin American songs and rhymes appear on a new book-CD from The Secret Mountain called “The Hummingbird Sings and Dances.”

Children’s Day is part of the Brooklyn Book Festival, which presents an array of national and international literary stars and emerging authors. More than 300 authors and 250 booksellers fill MetroTech Commons in an outdoor Literary Marketplace.

This year’s event will host musical entertainment by Grupo Cantaro and authors including Rumaan Alam, Martin Amis, Jennifer Egan, Tayari Jones, Akwaeke Emezi, Laura Lippmann, Terry McMillan, Carmen Maria Machado, Joyce Carol Oates, Greg Pardlo, Hermione Hoby, A.M. Homes, April Ryan, Alexander Chee, and Amber Tamblyn.

Grupo Cantaro at the Brooklyn Book Festival’s Children’s Day on Sept. 15 from 10 am to 4 pm. Free.
