Brief description: 

One of the oldest ragas known to mankind, Mohanam is a very popular audava raga that has been appropriately named. Although musicologists say that it is  derivative of the 28th melakarta raga - Harikambhoji, ragas like Shankarabharanam, Vachaspathi and Kalyani are also possibilities of being its parent raga. The debate considering the parent of Mohanam continues without a conclusion.

Mohanam is found in the music of many nations like Chinese, Japanese, Hungarian and Swedish. Rag Bhoop is the equivalent of Mohanam in Hindustani.
