It's not all about singing and guitars. There are a lot of great recordings out there that dispenses with this notion. You can take steps toward this idea with the halfway approach of recitative. This is the "sing-talk" approach used in operas for dialogue and exposition that does not rev up to a full-blown aria, duet, or something. Lovely-voiced sopranos performing Han Sturm's "Sun Suite" here employ this technique. A mapping onto music of sunset and the night sky, this neo-classical work combines elements of world music, modern jazz, and more with an avant-garde approach and stunning improvisation. The scintillating eight-movement opus offers the unexpected meeting of the Japanese koto and double bass, exotic African percussion and operatic vocals.
