Sipan is a Moche archaeological site in northern Peru that is famous for the tomb of El Senor de Sipan (Lord of Sipan), excavated by Walter Alva. It is considered to be one of the most important archaeological discoveries in the last thirty years, because the main tomb was found intact and undisturbed by thieves. Tombs were found in Sipan's Huaca Rajada, an area near Chiclayo. Many huaca were found showing Moche jewelry, masks, and art.
In honour to this culture, the Andean Peruvian Group SIPANMUSIC works to recover the fundaments of art expresion
