Alka Vuica (pronounced [âːlka ʋûitsa]; born 8 June 1961 in Pula, PR Croatia, FPR Yugoslavia) is a Croatian singer and songwriter. Her musical style can be described as a mixture of pop and local folk.

Alka started writing songs at the age of 12, when she was madly in love with Winetou. She arrived in Zagreb at the end of 1970s with aspiritions of studying special education. Thanks to meeting Adi Karaselimović who was a drummer of a band Srebrna Krila she was introduced with composer Đorđe Novković, manager Vladimir Mihaljek and most importantly Goran Bregović.[1]

In 1980s she worked as a journalist. She even did an interview with Goran Bregović. With time she has established herself as a prolific songwriter, especially after writing for Josipa Lisac.[1] For Josipa, Alka wrote "Gdje Dunav Ljubi nebo", "Danas Sam Luda", "Kraljica Divljine", "Moja Magija" and an entire album “Hoću samo tebe” which was released in 1983.[2]

In 1988, at the height of the popularity she met an artist Vuk Veličković, with whom she didn't remain in a relationship but are still close friends. They have a son called Arian.[1]

Vuica entered the Croatian presidential election, 2009–2010. On October 26, 2009 the Green List of Croatia announced they were supporting her bid for president.[3] Because of non suficient votes, she fell out of race and also noted that 835 votes were stolen from her in Trogir.[4]
