An original documentary series that tells in the beginnings, the rise and the irremediable fall of the musical formation formed by Xavier Font and his friends.

Locomia tells the story of this musical group but also explains how the music industry of the nineties worked from the inside thanks to the testimony of José Luis Gila manager, producer and director who decisively influenced the history of music and artists in our country.
According to Jorge Laplace, director of the series: “When I received the call to direct a series about Locomia, the first thing that happened was that a smile appeared on my face. The same thing happened to my friends when I told them what my next project was going to be. And it is that Locomia is part of the collective memory of an entire generation as a synonym for party, fun and madness. And that’s what I expected to find. But my entry into the world of Locomia was very different…”. Jorge found in this story “the tragedy of a group that disappeared when it had reached the top, to enter the American music market, after a war broke out between its creator, Xavier Font and his representative, José Luis Gil”.
An original documentary series is directed by Jorge Laplace and produced by Edi Walter, Mariano Tomiozzo and Pablo Aguinaga. In addition, Xavier Font, the music producer and manager José Luis Gil, the members of the different formations that the group had Manuel Arjona, Lurdes Iribar, Luis Font, Gard Passchier, Carlos Armas, Juan Antonio Fuentes, Antonio Albella, Pablo Robledo, and the last manager, Luis Balaguer.
