Aska (group)

Aska came to prominence when they were chosen to represent Yugoslavia at the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest, where their song "Halo, halo" only managed to achieve a lustreless 14th place out of 18 participants with 21 points, although having received the top mark of 12 points from the Swedish jury.

The members of the group were Snežana Mišković, Izolda Barudžija and Snežana Stamenković, who retired shortly upon the return from Harrogate, and was replaced by Suzana Perović.

The girls went on to record several albums before disbanding in order to pursue solo careers. Snežana Mišković remained in pop and went on to have an established career with her band Viktorija. Izolda Barudžija's career faded away after two additional attempts at the Eurovision Song Contest (in 1983 and 1984).

Suzana Perović switched to more commercial folk music and released a few semi-successful albums before she vanished from the music scene. The albums featured hits "Pobediće ljubav", "Dežurna pesma" and "Istanbul". However, her most remembered songs were "Princ iz bajke" and "Zašto ljubomoran nisi", recorded in 1987 for the follow-up to the ground-breaking Serbian comedy " Tesna koža" (which helped launch the career of the folk icon of the 1980s, Lepa Brena), and in which Perović appeared as a singer named Suzi.
