Attached is a bird singing in April 2021 in Guangxi, China. The clip has the same bouncing song repeated twice. Habitat area was grassy hillside areas, not far from some farm ponds and small wooded area. Any help would be appreciated!

I thought I'd bump this back to the top of the list, in case anyone else recognises it.
The best fit I can think of is Oriental Magpie Robin, which has a very variable song.

Thanks John. Certainly Magpie-robins in the area. The very fast, almost trilling portion of the song didn't strike me as likely magpie robin, but your experience is far beyond mine!

OMR doesn't usually have that trill, but they do add similar phrases from time to time. The song varies a lot between individuals. I'm not certain that's what your recording is, but it does sound like one and I don't recognise it as belonging to anything else.
