Hmm.. not sure what pages you've looked at, but SDL_mixer's main page
"It supports any number of simultaneously playing channels of 16 bit stereo
audio, plus a single channel of music, mixed by the popular MikMod MOD, Timidity
MIDI, Ogg Vorbis, and SMPEG MP3 libraries"
Pygame's page here:
mentions both MP3 and OGG specifically.
