This is not to say Colombia hasn't been heavily impressed by other nations, Colombia is notoriously an important market to a lot of music from outside. Medellin is considered the 2nd capital of Tango after Buenos Aires, Cali is the self-proclaimed Salsa capital of the world, Ecuadorian San Juanitos and Chullas are heard all over the south, African soukous have enjoyed popularity since the 80's, British Indie music has cult status and Mexican folk is arguably more popular than Colombian folk among the masses.
The music of Brazil was formed from the mixture of European, African and indigenous elements, brought by Portuguese settlers, slaves and by the natives who inhabited the so-called New World. Other influences have been added throughout history, establishing a huge variety of musical styles. At the time of the discovery of Brazil, the Portuguese were amazed at the natives' way of dressing and the way they made music: singing, dancing, playing instruments (rattles, flutes, drums). Unfortunately (for you) Colombia had no influence on the Brazilian music scene. You say many things without having to prove it. Saying that Colombia is the "Musical Influencing Center" of all countries and not having to prove it is even funny.

In terms of melody and harmony, Brazilian music is essentially derived from Europe. It uses the diatonic scale for most, the same principles for harmonic progression, and even the more recent developments like Bossa Nova share a lot in common with the European trends. The influence from Africa happens in the rythm of some genres, mostly developed in the coastal cities like Rio and Salvador.

However the countryside of Northeast developed a quite original music, appearing to be autochthonous. It opposes the myxolidian and dorian modes, and use also an original scale based on the lydian mode with flattened seventh. It's the closest thing which we can call as a "pure" brazilian music, distinct from both Europe and Africa.

For the Colombian music, I don't have enough knowledge, but appears to not have received direct influence from Brazil. Maybe it shares the melodic and harmonic rules from European origin, but in the same extension of any other western country.

I speak predominantly about the Spanish speaking Americas and though Colombia hasn't had a well documented influence on Brazilian music there is definitely a presence. Carimbo is a direct descendant of Cumbia. It's not my fault that by your own admission you're ignorant in these facts. It's common knowledge Brazilians are quite insular.

I never said Colombia is the musical center nothing of the sort. I'm not the one claiming Brazil has the top music scene in the world. However, the golden age of Spanish American popular music was predominantly driven by Cuban and Colombian music and Mexican films at the beginning of the last century. When the most iconic/successful figures both in history and in the present day cite Colombian music as an influence it's because guess what? There was an influence Shock Horror! As much as you want to deny it Michel Telo is your most successful contemporary artist and was directly influenced by Colombian music he says it himself and the same has been repeated throughout history.

Colombian music interpreted by icons across the Americas and the world...

Carlos Gardel - Argentina (Genre: Pasillo)




Pedro Infante - Mexico (Genre: Bambuco)




Celia Cruz - Cuba (Genre: Chalupa)




Nat King Cole - USA (Genre: Merecumbe)




Hector Lavoe + Willie Colon - Puerto Rico (Genre: Sexteto)




Brigitte Bardot - France (Genre: Torbellino)




Los Mirlos - Peru (Genre: Cumbia)




Julio Iglesias - Spain (Genre: Vallenato)




Africando - Senegal (Genre: Salsa)




Centauros - Venezuela (Genre: Joropo)





Colombian songs also feature predominantly in international classical choirs.

OAKE - Germany (Genre: Bullerengue)





Long etc...
