  Bajan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bajan uses a mixture of West African idioms and expressions along with English to produce a unique Barbadian/West Indian vocabulary and speech pattern.
Bajan is easily distinguishable from the dialects of neighbouring Caribbean islands, as many of the other Caribbean islands are based on Irish- or Scottish-based English pronunciation such as Jamaican Creole.
Bajan was first created when West African slaves were brought to the island and forced to speak English, with an existing West African understanding of language semantics.

I am fortunate to be Godfather, to the son of a B'dos born doctor working for the benefit of sick children in Canada and his sister(still in B'dos) is the Godmother of my daughter but this mistrust,born of harsh experience of life in both countries, seems to have affected even our relationships.

 Bajan Welt - Musik und Musikinstrumente - Home
Therefore also in Germany the accordion with a button keyboard in the treble is called bajan more and more frequently, whereas to the instrument with a key keyboard is contributed the name accordion.
In contrast to this in Russia the bajan has been taught in music schools for decades and is fully accepted also as a classical instrument.
Both the originality and the extraordinary sound and dynamic capacities of the bajan serve to completely new musical experience.

 A Bajan Occasion
The jerk chicken was grilled however, because Bajans are accustomed to barbecued chicken done on a grill.
This versiion of the famous island seasoning is from Ann Marie Whittaker, who noted: "This is found in almost every home and is the secret to the success for many mouth-watering Bajan dishes." One of the favorite uses is to place it between the meat and skin of chicken pieces before grilling, baking, or frying.
Pack the slits with the Bajan seasoning and rub the remainder on the outside of the meat.

 Bajan 'wuk-up' culture under fire - JAMAICAOBSERVER.COM
Until recently, middle- and upper-class Bajans holding influential positions were either waiting for officialdom to first condemn the degeneration of very suggestive sexual behaviour during Crop-Over, or simply holding their silence, especially those of minority ethnic communities, fearful of being misrepresented.
Whether out of fear of losing the votes of the predominant under-class, or simply hoping that the "wuk-up" frenzy, with its 'bumper' and 'belly' sexual dimensions would simply be corrected over time, both the ruling and opposition parties have preferred silence to public condemnation.
Some other commentators have been expressing outrage at young girls and adult women departing from costumed bands to gyrate on policemen and soldiers on duty, as if competing for attention as they do their "thing" from "the waist down", contemptuously mocking the morality that others of their country folk rightly want to preserve.

 Caribbean Poetry -- Bajan Culture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-12)
In Barbados, part of the culture comes from learning not to stare when you pass a cow grazing in the median (or on the side) of one of the island's busiest highways.
Because many Bajans don't have much land of their own, it's a more-or-less accepted practice for people to "tie down" their cows wherever the grass is. The Bajan leads the cow out in the morning, ties a heavy rock to the cow's horn by a long rope, and leaves the animal till nightfall.
The cow eventually provides meat (and sometimes milk, if the owner breeds the cow) for a Bajan family at a lower cost than buying the meat at market.
