Bangala is the name (not sure whether anyone in the area actually uses this name since it sounds like a term they'd use to refer to people rather than a language...) of a variety of Lingala (one of the lingua francas of the DRC) spoken in the border region between the DRC, South Sudan, and Uganda. This clip from the GRN starts with a song that's apparently in Bangala:

Lese a.k.a. Lissi or Efe is a Central Sudanic language spoken in the Ituri Forest in the northeastern part of the DRC. The Lese people live in association with another seminomadic group of people known, at least in English, as the "Efe Pygmies," who speak more or less the same language. Lese is part of a small group of languages called the Mangbutu-Lese languages (a.k.a. Mangbutu-Efe or simply Mangbutu). This is a clip of two songs in Lese; I'm listening to the first one, an elephant-hunting song recorded in 1956. It starts around 1:38 and ends around 6:43. I first heard the part from 3:47 to 4:08 (approximately) on Encarta:

Bila a.k.a. Forest Bira or Buudu is a Bantu language spoken in the Ituri Forest just south of the area where Lese/Efe is spoken. It doesn't seem to be very clear how it's related to other Bantu languages. This is apparently a song in Bila called "Akakalu Babini" performed by Chief Baonoko and various Bila men and women as part of the Sounds of Africa series (same series as the Mayogo song earlier in this thread):

Bali a.k.a. Baali, Kibali, or Libaali is a Boan language spoken in the DRC, like Kango and Kari. However, it is not part of the Bomokandian group within the Boan language group. There's a song beginning at 23:13 in the second clip on this GRN link, and it's apparently in Bali. It ends around 24:43:

Komo a.k.a. Kikuumu is another Boan language spoken in the DRC just south of where Bali is spoken. Like Bali, it's not part of the Bomokandian group. This is a GRN page with an hour's worth of songs in Komo; I'm just listening to the first one up to 3:04:

Nande a.k.a. Kinande, Ndandi, Orundandi, or Yira is a Great Lakes Bantu language, meaning that it's closely related to Kinyarwanda and Kirundi. It's spoken in the DRC on the border with southwestern Uganda near Lake Edward, not too far from Rwanda and Burundi (further from Burundi since it's northwest of both countries). This is a Nande folk song called "Thakumbirira" by a folk group called Yira Song MB:

Reposting a song in Kinyarwanda by Sandra Karigirwe called "Okurisa" (Grazing Cows), performed in a refugee camp in Uganda in 2000. Kinyarwanda is the official language of Rwanda along with English, French, and Swahili, which it's pretty closely related to. I think there used to be a more complete version of this song on YouTube but not anymore, it seems:

Shi a.k.a. Kishi or Nyabungu is another Great Lakes Bantu language spoken in the DRC on the border with Rwanda. The Bashi (who speak Shi) are the largest tribe in the province of South Kivu, and the capital of South Kivu is Bukavu, very close to the Rwandan border, where this video is from. This is apparently a Shi folk dance performed in Bukavu and led by someone referred to in the video description as "Mr. Tembura":
