Torghut is a variety of Oirat (a Mongolic language) that is spoken in Xinjiang as well as in parts of Mongolia and Kalmykia (Russia). This is a song in Torghut from Xinjiang by a singer named Halin. The title apparently means "Summer Ranch Rainbow":

Gojri is a Rajasthani language spoken in Kashmir and Afghanistan. This is a song in Gojri from Kashmir called "Kartar Poonchi" by a poet named Noor Mohammad Noor. It was recorded in Poonch, which is in the far western part of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, on the border with Azad Kashmir in Pakistan:

Lahauli is a Tibetic language spoken in Himachal Pradesh, just south of Ladakh and west of Tibet. Wikipedia claims that it is more closely related to Tibetan than to Ladakhi (if I'm not mistaken, both are spoken fairly close to where Lahauli is spoken). This is a song in Lahauli called "Chespa bhates sem giv ranire":

Spiti is another Tibetic language spoken in roughly the same area as Lahauli (northern Himachal Pradesh, the district of Lahaul-Spiti) and is apparently very closely related to it. This is a song in Spiti called "Solo Namri." The user who uploaded this song also has some songs in Lahauli on his video channel:

In the middle of Himachal Pradesh, there is a village called Malana where people speak a West Himalayish language (i.e. Sino-Tibetan, closely related to Kinnauri) called Kanashi. AFAICT Kanashi is only spoken in Malana. This is a video filmed by a visitor of women in Malana, three of whom are singing a folk song in Kanashi:

This is a song (and folk dance) from Pithoragarh District in Uttarakhand in northern India, near the border with Nepal, from the Kangdali Festival that takes place there every year. It's in another West Himalayish language; I think it's in Chaudangsi (although it could be in another closely related language called Byangsi, which is also spoken in roughly the same area) because the video description keeps using words like "Chaudas," "Chaundasi," and "Shauka," all of which I'm pretty sure refer to Chaudangsi:

The Tharu languages are a dialect continuum of Indo-Aryan languages spoken in the Terai of southwestern Nepal. One of them is Kathoriya Tharu. This is a song I was just listening to in Kathoriya Tharu celebrating Holi, the spring festival that is also celebrated in much of India (though not so much in South India), which apparently lasts for eight days in the Kathoriya Tharu community. It's from a movie in Kathoriya Tharu called Sanghari:

This is another song in a Tharu language. :lol: This one I think is in Dangaura Tharu, which is spoken a bit further east than Kathoriya Tharu. I think it's spoken quite close to Kathoriya Tharu, though, and Wikipedia seems to claim that they're mutually intelligible with each other. This song is called "Sobar Goriya" (सोबर गोरिया):
