Two Israeli bands I stumbled upon: Maqama (Eclectic?) and Tree (Psychedelic?), both unsigned but with releases.

Maqama:

Their Myspace bio:
"DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW] Review on french PROG magazine - http://www.progressia.net/index.php4?rub=chroniques&idchronik=1666 ***** Maqama was assembled in Tel Aviv, Israel in summer 2006 by sister and brother Noa (Keyboard, vocal) and Ido (Bass) Lewit Joined by long time friend and musical companion drummer David Baruch and guitar wizard Udi Glaser. While influences run from pop, classical, 70th Hebrew music and progressive rock to jazz-fusion and metal Maqama has its own sound characterized by Noa's unique compositions and the entire band's intricate instrumental arrangements. Debut Album titled "Maqama" is out on August 2008 and is now available on ktsat-acheret record store (new location on 41 Pinsker St. Tel-Aviv) as well as other record stores. purchase the album at Musica-Neto - http://www.musicaneto.com/disk_details.asp?disk_id=20390 or at Jazzis - https://www.jazzis.com/shop/ (type maqama at the search box) .For info contact maqama@gmail.com"

Great, Assaf.  I'm listening to Maqama now -- sounds good for Eclectic to me thus far.  I'll add it to the chart.  Very good one.

EDIT: based on those I've voted yes for Maqama, and will mention it to the Eclectic team.  Thanks.

Maqama is cleared for addition to Eclectic.  I found this one to be very good.
