I recently watched some of the bonus material in the film "The Fall" for anyone who's seen it. Anyways, I believe they were in India somewhere and there was a man playing a stringed instrument I have never seen before and haven't been able to identify.

The instrument looked somewhat like an Erhu. The gentleman had it cradled at his left elbow, where a small gourd shaped resonator was with the neck heading up his arm and past his hand. It was facing towards him. There were 2, maybe 3 large tuners a little ways above the middle point of the neck, spaced a decent amount from each other. The neck was skinny and the strings were near the outsides of the neck, about 2 or 3 cm away from the neck. He played the instrument with a bow, but it was a curved bow with bells on one end so as to have percussion while he played it.

I couldn't manage to find anything that looked like it online. It had an incredibly unique sound, especially with the bells going as well.
