"Con Alma" is a jazz standard written by Dizzy Gillespie, appearing on his 1954 album Afro. The tune incorporates aspects of bebop jazz and Latin rhythm, and is known for its frequent changes in key centers (occurring every two bars), while still maintaining a singable melody.

Versions have been recorded by Oscar Peterson, Wes Montgomery, Ed Bickert, Stan Getz, Kenny Burrell and Ray Bryant.

The song was recorded by Chaka Khan in 1982 as part of the "Be Bop Medley" from her album Chaka Khan.
