It's not uncommon for families of color to include various Aunts and Uncles that are not actually blood relatives.

In my own extended family I grew up with an Aunt Everette and an Uncle Russell, well regarded members who were actually close friends who grew up in the same community as our grandfather.

Maria Elena's mom died when she was 12? In a plane crash, if I remember correctly. It's possible Maria's father made the decision to let Provi take her under her wing as she was a respected professional who would look out for her. It wasn't easy being a person of color (even in the music industry) in the 1950s, as most readers here might have read.
