Is harmony learned or innate?

Is harmony learned or innate?

The connection between math and music is interesting. One of my professors remarked that every large university math department he had ever seen included enough serious musicians for a small chamber orchestra. Of course there is a lot of math in music. There is a lot of math in everything, so much so that there are very serious people who think the world is made of math.

But what about musical harmony? It is just a cultural artifact?
