The daily singing and dancing provide the order and cohesion that enables the Mbuti to live in peace with each other and with their neighbors and enables them to enjoy the fruits of their other labors. They use dance and song to celebrate not only every important event in the people's life cycle but also in their daily, most commonplace economic activities."
