Can anyone name this instrument?

Can anyone name this instrument?:-

Or combination of instruments, I guess.  A small light cymbal along with some exotic (oriental) stringed instrument.  I have no idea how to even begin searching for its name.
I've been going through this website over and over, to increase my 'vocabulary' of real instruments, hoping to find it:-

It's a small Chinese hand gong: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7Ou1LUbUEs
The ones in the video sound a bit different but I hope you get the idea.

Groovy.  Coincidentally, this instrument is not on that website.  Not that I could find.
It's an incredibly distinct sounding instrument and it's great to finally figure it out.
