BBC Music Memories and BBC World Service are launching an international journey through music as part of the BBC’s music and dementia initiative.

For World Alzheimer’s Day, BBC World Service is helping to expand the international music catalogue to create a rich database linking communities across the world through music. From Afghanistan to Argentina, from Sao Paulo to St Petersburg, the audiences of BBC News services – Afaan Oromo, the Afghan service in Pashto and Dari, Amharic, Arabic, Brasil, Gujarati, Hindi, Igbo, Indonesia, Kyrgyz, Mundo in Spanish, Marathi, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Urdu, and Yoruba - have been choosing, sharing and commenting on their iconic songs to build a playlist of 50 top songs from their countries.
