Girafot (Hebrew for Giraffes) is an Israeli folk-rock and alternative rock band formed in 1992. Gilad Kahana and Yair Kez met in the Israeli army in 1989 and they were the original core of the band. While working on the song Rami Moo'asham Be'Hachzakat Samim Kalim (Rami Is Accused of Posession Of Soft Drugs) they brought in Rotem Dror, who has served in the IDF with Kahana and Kez, to sing backing vocals on that one track. Instead she became a full member of the band, serving as a second keyboardist and vocalist. After deciding they needed a real drummer rather than just drum machines Didi Erez, a childhood friend of Kez, was invited to join the group. Guitarist Erez Russo completed the lineup for the first album, Mesoche'ach Im Kisseh (Conversing With A Chair), released in 1999.

While the group toured during the next several years a second album, Gag (Roof) didn't emerge until 2006, with Asi Sasson replacing Erez on drums. It was Girafot's most successful album to date and is a certified gold record in Israel. Ein Knisa LePilim (No Elephants Allowed), the third album, was inspired by the band's 2008 tour of India.
