Coming from _BitBlt_ methodology of creating 2D games, what is the equivalent of _clear screen_ on Cairo?

On rastered type of rendering engine, the pseudo code would be:

while app is running
  clear screen
    draw stuff to buffer
  draw buffer to screen
end while

How is this logic applied when using cairo library? Is it safe to simply FILL the whole area of  the main context with color black (or any color that is)?
