Codona was a free jazz and world fusion group which released three self-titled albums on the ECM label in 1978, 1980 and 1982.

The trio consisted of Don Cherry (trumpet, melodica, organ), Collin Walcott (tabla, sitar, percussion), and Nana Vasconcelos (berimbau, percussion).[1][2][3][4]

The name of the group is derived from the first two letters of each of the member's first names.[1]
