Hope me identify a cover of a Cold Play song. [IdentiSongFilter]

Okay, I've only heard this song once on the radio, played on the station KCRW in SoCal. I haven't heard the song since. So, there is a possibility I've finally lost it and actually experience surreal music hallucinations while driving to work.
The song is apparently a cover of the Cold Play single titled Talk. But if recollection serves me right, this cover is entirely an instrumental version.
The aspect of the cover which stands out most prominently in my mind is the hook, or gimmick of the song. (If hook or gimmick are the correct terms for that part of the song.) In the original ColdPlay version of the song this hook is performed on the guitar. And on further review, this is the riff ColdPlay borrowed from Kraftwerk's Computer Love song. Hopefully, this makes what I'm asking a little more comprehensible.
On the cover song I heard, the riff is played by (from what I can remember) some type of classical Chinese string instrument. The other instruments in the song were apparently also classical instruments.
So, the song is a cover of ColdPlay's talk played by Classical Chinese instruments. Pleas help me identify this song. Thank you.
