Abstract: The singing and dancing performances called be among the Baka were studied. The singing and dancing can be classified into two categories: one, infromal and playful performances participated by women and children, and the other, formal and dramatic ones directed by men. Three types of performances (zaiko, kpalam, jengi) are described in detail. An analysis is made on Baka participatory behavior and the social relationships embodied in these performances.
