what does paisa mean
some of my Colombian friends says paisa to describe albums with pictures and some say is like slang in certain parts of Colombia, does anyone know of this ?
The name of Paisa derives from the Spanish apocope of Paisano (one from the same country),
some say its a term used mainly in medellin
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.
Perhaps they're referring to paisanos in the the album?
Paisano = countryman
thanks guys , you helped alot and i will ask her to be certain , some say its a term used mainly in medellin
