I think it might be Egyptian Arabic, although the singer is Lebanese.

This is the first song from the 26th Molisan Dialect Song Festival, which took place in August 2015. This particular song is called "P'nzier" and is by Siracusa Leodi, who is from Montagano. Montagano is located in the Province of Campobasso, just 9 km (6 mi) north of the capital of the same name:

(mn) Хар сарнай - Миний нутаг (My Native Land)
According to the video description, this is part of a poem written by Дашдоржийн Нацагдорж (Dashdorjiin Natsagdorj) in 1930.

Petrella Tifernina is a comune immediately to the northeast of Montagano. IIUC, this is a video of a town square dance (in Petrella Tifernina) from way back in 1986. The band playing the background music to this videoclip is called L'Arcobaleno. The language doesn't sound like Standard Italian to me; it sounds (to me at least) more like what I've heard of Molisan so far, so I'm guessing it's in the local variety of Molisan:

Just heard this Bollywood ripoff of Deep Purple's Child in Time in a restaurant and it threw me way off guard.

Ferrazzano is a village and comune located in the southern part of the Province of Campobasso, just south of Campobasso, which is the capital of the province and in fact of the region of Molise as well. This is a folk dance and song from Ferrazzano, filmed in August 2014, courtesy of Molise Web TV. As usual, I'm guessing this is in the local variety of Molisan, especially since it's apparently a folk band performing it (but of course can never be sure! :P):

San Giovanni in Galdo is a comune located to the northeast of Campobasso. This is a clip of a few folk songs from San Giovanni in Galdo being performed not anywhere in Italy but in fact in Montreal. The main song that starts around 1:20 is apparently called "La Molisana" and announced as the "national anthem of Molise" (even though there isn't an official one AFAIK):

(mhr) It's Meadow Mari. :)
It is quite hard to tell the difference, the title would perhaps be the same in both languages (ош = white, висвис = daisy?) but I found the lyrics here and there are some words that would differ slightly in Hill Mari, like уло, 'is' (Hill Mari улы), гай, 'as' (Hill Mari гань), чыла, 'everything' (Hill Mari цила) etc.

:idea: It sounds like a candidate for the Forum Song Contest ...

Ripabottoni is a comune located in eastern Molise, in the Province of Campobasso, separated from San Giovanni in Galdo by the comuni of Monacilioni and Campolieto (to the west of Monacilioni). This is a song from Ripabottoni that I'm guessing might be in the local variety of Molisan (the singing doesn't begin until 0:43):

Larino is a town in northeastern Molise, in the Province of Campobasso, that has been inhabited for thousands of years. This is a song from Larino in Molisan from the 24th Molisan Dialect Song Festival, which took place in 2013. It's sung by Alberi Sonori and is called "A fond' abballe." The lyrics are included in the video description (Sonori begins reading from the third line to the seventh, then singing everything after that after the initial bagpipe solo, then going back to the eleventh line to the end again):

Guardialfiera is a comune that's located in the Province of Campobasso just west of Larino and to the northwest of Casacalenda. Every October 1, Guardialfiera has a grape festival. This is a song from the last grape festival in Guardialfiera; I'm guessing it's in the local variant of Molisan, but what I do I know? In any case, here it is:

Bagnoli del Trigno is a comune in the northeastern part of the Province of Isernia, on the border with the Province of Campobasso, just to the northwest of Duronia. This is a song from Bagnoli del Trigno called "Papiuccie Cavalir." That doesn't sound like Standard Italian to me, so I'm guessing it's in the local variety of Molisan:
