Luna (Serbian: Луна) is a popular pop group from Serbia with considerable popularity throughout the former Yugoslavia. The key group member is multi-instrumentalist and composer Čeda Čvorak (born Čedomir Rajičić).[1] They released ten studio albums.

Luna have been recording albums since the late 1990s, and popular songs have included Drugarice (Girlfriend) with Svetlana Ražnatović (Ceca), and more recently Ne ostavljaj me (Don't leave me), featuring Gloria from Bulgaria (one of a number of songs sung in Bulgarian and Serbian). The song was originally released by Luna in 1999.

The first and best known lead singer was Bosnian-Serbian female singer Maja Marković, who stayed in the group from 1997. She left the group in 2006 and was replaced by the studied ballerina Kristina Čanković, who was the lead singer from 2007 to 2009.[2] Notable songs sung by Kristina had been Ulica uzdaha and Jako, Jako released in late 2007. Ulica uzdaha was a duet with distinguished Bosnian singer Halid Bešlić.

In 2009 the new female vocalists Zejna Murkić and Lidija Jadžić joined the group and released two albums together.[3] In 2010 Čeda Čvokak announced that he would stop working with Zejna Murkić and would work only with Lidija Jadžić in the future.[4] Shortly after this statement Ivana Krunić joined the group.[5]

They are signed with the record label City Records.
