Bojoura, born Raina Gerardina Bojoura van Melzen (15 April 1947), is a folk and pop vocalist, whose greatest success came in the late 1960s and 1970s.

Born in The Hague, The Netherlands, Bojoura was discovered by George Kooymans of the rock band Golden Earring, who went on to write and produce many of her songs. Bojoura scored her first hit in 1967 with the Kooymans ballad "Everybody's Day," and in 1969 charted once more in Europe with her version of the song "Frank Mills" from the Broadway musical Hair. Through the mid-1970s she remained one of the most popular singers in the Netherlands. Bojoura is married to the Dutch drummer Hans Cleuver, who was a founding member of the progressive rock band Focus.[1]
