May be Albizia lucidior.


… is right.  The characters appear to be within the range of variation of Albizia lucidior having 1-3 pairs of pinnae and (1-) 2-5 (-7) pairs of leaflets, acuminate at apex and the terminal, once or twice branched panicles of heads (2-few-together) and the latter with 10-15 dimorphic flowers (central flower different from the marginal flowers). Image of the pods are welcome.
