English version

The name of Paisa derives from the Spanish apocope of Paisano (one from the same country),

addendum

some say its a term used mainly in medellin

well...

se le asigna a todos los habitantes nacidos en el departamento de Antioquia; caracterizados principalmente por ser la zona que mas le ha aportado al desarrollo económico de Colombia por medio del cultivo del café y el sector industrial principalmente en Medellín).

The albums may contain pictures from those particular regions of Colombia or they may have to do with coffee growing.
