A first-half goal by Inter Milan defender Jeison Murillo settled a frenetic Group C encounter in Santiago which leaves Colombia firmly in contention for a place in the quarter-finals.
Colombia held on to that lead as Brazil were unable to draw level.
It was a nice way to get back at Brazil having lost in the FIFA World Cup quarters last year.
A bad night got worse for Neymar as he got his second yellow to be sent off at the end of the game. He will miss Brazil's next match against Venezuela.
Colombian fans could scarcely hide their delight as they celebrated the goal in a frenzy.
It was colour, fun and frolic as Colombia pulled off a big upset.
When the final whistle was blown, the fans could scarcely believe it and their joy knew no bounds.
There was jubilation among the Colombians as they celebrated a historic win in the Copa America.
