Donna Ares (real name Azra Kolaković) (born January 1, 1977, Bihać, Bosnia and Herzegovina, then Yugoslavia) is a popular Bosniak folk singer in Bosnia and Herzegovina and equally popular in the other former Yugoslav republics such as Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro and Slovenia.



She attended the local music secondary school as well local music primary school in Bihać. She graduated in 1995. Kolaković even started a music academy, unfortunately she never managed to finish it due to the war that was going on in Yugoslavia at the time.

In 1997 she started her solo singing career. The first time she appeared on stage was in 1997 under her stage name Donna Ares to compete with her song in the Croatian Dora competition in order to represent Croatia in the Eurovision Song Contest. In the same year, Kolaković gained success with her song "Kazna" ("Punishment") in her hometown Bihać. Since then she produced songs like, "Ubila me tvoja nevjera" ("Your infidelity killed me") or "Idi Idi Moja Vilo" (Go on my fairy.) She is known to sing other songs like "Noćas mi srce pati" ("Tonight my heart hurts" by Silvana Armenulić.[1] [2]). After 10 years of her career, she returned to her hometown where she had her own concert. Her biggest hit to date is "To mi nije trebalo" (I Didn't Need This).
