The Paisa or Paisas in "plural" are people who inhabit a region over the northwest Colombia in the Andes.
The region is formed by the departamentos (provinces) of Antioquia, Caldas, Risaralda and Quindío. Some regions of Valle del Cauca (north) and Tolima (west) belong to the cultural identity of paisas. The main cities are Medellín, Pereira, Manizales and Armenia.
Although the expression "Paisa" is of popular use as apocope of "Paisano" (one from the same country; countryman).
The paisas have been considered a genetically isolated population according with researches. They are predominantly European ancestry because it is said that the male Spaniards who settled the region during the 16th and 17th centuries came with their women.
Paisas are well known in Colombia for their kindness and welcoming aptitude to persons from other regions and visitors.
Bandeja paisa: It is the more traditional dish and is generally composed by carne asada (grilled steak) or carne molida (finely ground grilled steak), chicharrón (fried pork rind), rice, red beans, a slice of avocado, sweet fried plantains, a fried egg, a small white corn arepa, and sometimes chorizo (sausage). Bandeja paisa is also a very popular dish served in Colombian restaurants in Europe and the United States.
Someone born in the city of Medellin, or the province of Antioquia, in the country of Colombia.

I Think Paisas Are Fuckn Cute.
Short term for "paisano" which translates to countryman.

People who are described as "paisas" usually love to listen to "quebradita" music which is the most hickish, disturbing music ever invented. They also speak very little English, which would be okay had they at least mastered the basics in Spanish--which most do not--and have a whiney voice when they do "speak" Spanish. They also claim to be very patriotic but hardly know anything about the history and culture of their country.
