In 1996, Saúl Hernández sang a duet with Algerian raï singer Khaled. The song, called "Ki Kounti", is sung partially in Arabic and Spanish.[2]

After Caifanes' breakup, Saul Hernández formed a new band in late 1995, called Jaguares, along with former Caifanes drummer Alfonso André and two long time friends, Federico Fong on the bass guitar and Jose Manuel Aguilera on the lead guitar. Jose Manuel Aguilera was involved in the Jaguares' first studio album only. Cesar "Vampiro" Lopez later took over on lead guitar and has been in the band since. Since then, Jaguares has consolidated into one of Spanish Rock's premier bands with both critical and commercial success.
