What is Bayan?

Very often I am being ask what the is Bayan? And why don't I call it simply a "Button Accordion". I hope I gave a clear answer on my front page: Today I've found on the Internet an interesting short documentary about it. Quite briefly, featuring Friedrich Lips and a nice story on making the Bayan. No way I wanted to make an advertisement for any factory or bayan maker, performer or place. Simply an explanation of what Bayan is.
