Generally describes a person from the same origin as oneself.

Paisano originates from the Italian lauguage, in which it means "Brother." It is also the equivalent to "Homie" in the U.S. and often shortened to "Paisa" in slang terms.
Cristian and Jessica are both from Panama.

Therefore Jessica can call Cristian a Paisano. (or Paisa)
