Here is a description of how to edit mp3 in Nama (untested).
There are shortcuts and tab autocompletion so that in actual
practice you can type much less. 


nama> new-project extracts
nama> add-track source-audio
nama> import /some/path/to/audio.mp3

Use the SPACE key to start and stop playing.

Go through the material laying down marks.

nama> compose-into-sequence edited-audio source-audio start-segment1 end-segment1 start-segment2 end-segment2

nama> source-audio off
nama> mixdown

look for extracts.mp3 in the project directory, in this case

Hope this helps! There is a learning curve.
