I'm suggesting they be added as progressive related.  They use a lot of exotic instruments and have very eastern rhythms in a lot of songs.  Their older albums are more progressive, but their newest isn't that much so.  They're from Canada.

Their site

I think they should be considered.  I can add more to the details if people are interested.  I think it will need a few Canadians to support the idea, since we're probably the only ones who know about them, though it did say in their bio that they had their first gold record in Australia.

The first two albums of the Tea Party are progressive, in my opinion.

I love the Tea Party. They are an actual band, other than the boring radio-rock you hear day after day on the rock stations and muchmusic, mtv, etc. They have progressive elements and have middle eastern influences. I think it would be worth putting them on prog related. Edges of Twighlight is pretty good, I think my favourite Tea Party album

Sounds like a plan
