Thank you for the ID Anne Marie McCaffrey.

There are 7 species of Oropendola in Peru. After looking at photos, my best guess is Russet-backed Oropendola.

I think it is an oropendola. The strange noises you describe, and the position, are typical of oropedolas. I don't know which species are native to Peru though...
