Could u suggest me some good symphonic prog band with a modern approach with some etnic element and much melodic like neoprogressive. No band organ oriented or with vintage sound; although i can tollerate the mellotron or analog moog LOL

No Flower king, Anglagard, Transatlantic, Kaipa, or Spock Beard LOL

I like the symphonic band of the '80:

Asia Minor
Anyone Daughter
Solaris

And some of the '90 like:

Drama
Apocalypse

When you mean by ethnic, you mean other than occidental people. It's easy to find a little ethnic sound in some rock music band, but to a new prog band with melody and neo prog sound, that's much harder. I can only think in some bands like Collage, Subterra or Quidam that play some prog rock that is typical to the country they came from.

I looking for Symphonic bands, not neoprog bands. They should be stay in symphonic category, so i take off the ethnic feature to be much easy the search.

For example a band that i like much is Clearlight, although it came from the middle 70. They haven't that old sound...and sound more modern!!!

This one sounds great,  maybe it doesn't have a modern sound, but there's that ethnic sound.

really ?
Listen to the song below, the drums remind a lot Pallas' early records, Castanarc's 'journey to the east' or the demo versions on the remastered version of Marillion's 'fugazi'.

Satellite could satisfy your tastes (starting with the author of the artwork below) :
 
 
Cairo should count as well (RIP Bret) :
 
Camel could appear as precursors of neo-prog, together with Saga and Genesis
and sounded more and more neo-prog with time :
 
Camel calls for Happy The Man, through Kit Watkins, and 'better late' is somewhat neo-proggish :
 
Happy The Man's last album has Joe Bergamini on drums, who released an album of AOR/jazz-rock, 'arrival', that should appeal to fans of neo-prog :
 
Camel also

Symphonic prog with neo-prog influence? Nexus, Magenta and Citizen Cain. It doesn't get much better than that.

You have a lot to start with.

I found the eponymous album of Saga nicely symphonic with a proto-Neo-Prog element throughout.  Ripping mini-moog solos too Thumbs Up.

Yes, the first Cairo album is a great album. I have listened to it a lot of times.

La Locanda Delle Fatte's "Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amano Piu" for me quite represents the "missing link" between Symphonic and Neo, great album if you don't mind lyrics in italian.

I also strongly support:
Citizen Cain: "Somewhere But Yesterday"
Crucible: "Tall Tales"
Now: "Spheres" (the dutch band)

Love that Crucible one.  Little known classic for sure!

The guitar in the Cairo album always seemed out of place to me.  I'll have to try it again soon and see if that's still the case.
