Tīrkultūra is an interdisciplinary contemporary culture platform working mainly through the medium of sound. Tīrkultura is a listener-powered, non-commercial, and non-profit online radio station, based in Riga, Latvia.
Tīrkultura started in 2015 as a radio show founded by fashion designer Rolands Pēterkops, sound artist Reinis Semēvics and musician, composer Jānis Šipkēvics.
From March 2020 Tirkultura is also available as an independent and listener-supported 24/7 radio station, which means no ads or sponsored content.
Tīrkultura does not belong to any existing public radio networks, but you can hear us on LR3 weekly as a Tirkultūra radio show. Our streaming radio platform is available live, free of charge, over the web, 24/7.
You can tune-in anytime, and find unexpected sounds, curated mix-tapes, poetry readings, sound collages, curated interviews with 21st-century composers, artists, and personalities from contemporary art, field recordings, and live streams from Tirkultūra and our partner's events, etc. Tīrkultūra covers a broad spectrum of music genres - classical, electronic, spoken-word, soundscapes, contemporary, rap, ambient, rock, experimental, folk, drone.
Our mission is to enrich and inspire the development of culture in Latvia and showcase the art of sound in the context of contemporary art.
Tirkultūra is also recognized as a producer of live visual sound sessions in the form of White Wall concert sessions presented at partnership venues in Latvia, as well as a biannual series of Unexpected Sources. Both events aim to merge visual art with the art of sound opening up the platform to local and international artists.

Co-founders Palanga Street Radio (LT), Tirkultura (LV) and IDA Radio (EE/ FI) working together to support, inspire and sustain one another, as well as the wider field of independent community radio.icrn.live
