Locomía (also known as Loco Mia) is a Spanish pop group popular in the 1980s and 1990s. They combined elements of tropical with British music of the new wave and New Romantics. Their first hit was the eponymous song "Locomia".

The original members were Xavier Font, Manuel Arjona, Gard Paschieer, and Luis Font. In 1987, the latter two were replaced by Juan Antonio Fuentes and Carlos Armas, and later Francesc Picas replaced Xavier Font.[1] They often appeared in extravagant outfits that combined Spanish matador pants with frilly jackets done in eighteenth-century style. Fan-twirling was an important part of both their stage performance and their music videos. Both their outfits and their fan-twirling became trademarks of the group and contributed to their huge popularity.
